Discharging Income Taxes in Nebraska Bankruptcy Cases

Can you discharge your income tax debts by filing bankruptcy in Nebraska? This is a very complicated topic, but generally a debtor may be eligible to discharge income taxes if they file the tax return and three (3) years have gone by since the time the return was due. If you filed a tax return a few years after it was due, then two (2) years must go by before the income tax may be discharged in bankruptcy. This is a very basic overview of how income taxes may be discharged in bankruptcy. There are many other rules that apply and this video is not intended to provide legal advice in your situation. Discharging income tax debts in a Nebraska bankruptcy case is tricky. Filing a case one day too soon may result in none of the taxes being discharged. Tax liens also present special problems as well.
