I contacted Derek and Toronjo & Prosser Law to discuss some tax issues I was dealing with on some past due obligations.  My CPA suggested that the old taxes might be dischargeable in bankruptcy, but I wasn’t sure.  I talked with Derek and he walked me through the elements of eliminating those taxes and we moved forward with a chapter 7 bankruptcy.  We received a chapter 7 discharge, and sure enough, the IRS confirmed that the chapter 7 wiped out over $200,000 in past due taxes.  This has put us in a much better financial position.
