Amending a tax return Additionally, this publication is not updated on an annual basis and may not reflect recent developments in bankruptcy or tax law. Amending a tax return If you need more guidance on the bankruptcy or tax laws applicable to your case, you should seek professional advice. Amending a tax return This publication explains the basic federal income tax aspects of bankruptcy. Amending a tax return A fundamental goal of the bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress is to give an honest debtor a financial “fresh start”. Amending a tax return This is accomplished through the bankruptcy discharge, which is a permanent injunction (court ordered prohibition) against the collection of certain debts as a personal liability of the debtor. Amending a tax return Bankruptcy proceedings begin with the filing of either a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court, or in certain cases an involuntary petition filed by creditors. Amending a tax return This filing creates the bankruptcy estate. Amending a tax return The bankruptcy estate generally consists of all of the assets the individual or entity owns on the date the bankruptcy petition was filed. Amending a tax return The bankruptcy estate is treated as a separate taxable entity for individuals filing bankruptcy petitions under chapter 7 or 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, discussed later. Amending a tax return The tax obligations of taxable bankruptcy estates are discussed later under Individuals in Chapter 7 or 11. Amending a tax return Generally, when a debt owed to another person or entity is canceled, the amount canceled or forgiven is considered income that is taxed to the person owing the debt. Amending a tax return If a debt is canceled under a bankruptcy proceeding, the amount canceled is not income. Amending a tax return However, the canceled debt reduces other tax benefits to which the debtor would otherwise be entitled. Amending a tax return See Debt Cancellation, later.
