About a 5 months ago I went on a payment plan with the IRS for past due taxes of 5 years. 34000 – $578 monthly. After I went through my finances with IRS $578 is what I have left after all my living expenses. IRS dose not include Charge cards Payments as expenses which is the $578 I have to pay top IRS. They left me with no money to pay my charge cards. I’m currant on my charge cards up to now ,but I wont be able to make any more payments. I owe about $20.000 in charge cards
What are my alternatives . Can I go Bankrupt, and how much will it cost. Thank you for your time Tom
The IRS comes first, everything else last. Many people in similar situations find it necessary to file bankruptcy to discharge the rest of their debt so they can make the IRS payments.
I would suggest you find a local bankruptcy attorney. You’ll have to ask the attorney how much they charge. It varies by region.
