What kinds of Debts are Not Dischargeable in Bankruptcy
Income tax debts are not dischargeable if the taxing authority has put a lien on your property for nonpayment of income tax debt. In that case you must pay the amount of the income tax debt relative to the tax lien. If you did not file your income tax return for the tax year that gave rise to the debt, that debt is not dischargeable. If you have what is known as an “Offer and Compromise” with a tax authority you may not be able to discharge that debt.
Domestic support obligations such as child support or spousal support are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. Civil liability for injury or death as the result of the intoxicated use of a motor vehicle is not dischargeable. Criminal restitution is not dischargeable. If you are found to have committed fraud in connection with representations you made to a lender in the loan application process, that debt is not dischargeable.
The above information is a general overview and is not intended to be used as legal advice.
