Video Transcription: Question Do I Need to File All of My Tax Returns? Answer When you file for bankruptcy you are required to have filed all of your tax returns that were outstanding that you have not filed. Often times there are people that are not required for various reasons. For example you may not have made enough income to require filing. You may be receiving social security benefits that are below a certain threshold requiring it. However if you were required to file taxes and you have not you should take this opportunity to get all of those filed and receive advise from us on which taxes. If you do have tax liability we’re able to discharge and which ones we are not. Because bankruptcy after all is about a fresh start and you want to make sure that all of your financial issues are up to date, you are able to get that fresh start on your debt as well as not have any IRS issues lingering after the case is filed.
