Facing IRS Debt? A NJ Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may be the Answer for You

December 30, 2014 David E. Sklar Bankruptcy, Chapter 13

NJ-chapter-13-bankruptcy If you owe tax debt and the IRS or state is coming after you, then a New Jersey chapter 13 bankruptcy may be an option for you.  Even if the tax debt is non-dischargeable, you can structure a chapter 13 plan to make payments over the period of five years towards your debt. During that time neither the IRS nor the state will be able to take any action to collect the debt owed to them due to the automatic stay. The automatic stay protects a debtor from creditor actions while a bankruptcy case is ongoing.
