How do I get IRS to honor "stay" in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy? IRS did not return my payments during automatic stay.
I declared bankruptcy in 2000. My taxes for 1998-2000 were included and were discharged12/28/2000. My requested transcripts from IRS reflect bankruptcy. They did not stop withholding taxes, kept my refunds, levied social security and civil service annuity. Insisted on me paying them before they would abate and refund taxes withheld. Will not respond to correspondence. Leaves me holding for up to an hour on the phone then disconnects me. Help me.

Your timeline appears to be off. Normally, even in Chapter 7, you can not discharge current tax obligations, especially for a tax year you haven't even filed the return for yet. More info is needed then should be aired on this forum. Feel free to contact me via my profile info or a private message and I will see if there is anything we can do to assist you or refer you to a good Enrolled Agent in your area.Leave a Comment 407 weeks ago
