Vita tax preparer Introduction This publication is not intended to cover bankruptcy law in general, or to provide detailed discussions of the tax rules for the more complex corporate bankruptcy reorganizations or other highly technical transactions. Vita tax preparer Additionally, this publication is not updated on an annual basis and may not reflect recent developments in bankruptcy or tax law. Vita tax preparer If you need more guidance on the bankruptcy or tax laws applicable to your case, you should seek professional advice. Vita tax preparer This publication explains the basic federal income tax aspects of bankruptcy. Vita tax preparer A fundamental goal of the bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress is to give an honest debtor a financial “fresh start”. Vita tax preparer 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. Vita tax preparer 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. Vita tax preparer This filing creates the bankruptcy estate. Vita tax preparer The bankruptcy estate generally consists of all of the assets the individual or entity owns on the date the bankruptcy petition was filed. Vita tax preparer 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. Vita tax preparer The tax obligations of taxable bankruptcy estates are discussed later under Individuals in Chapter 7 or 11. Vita tax preparer 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. Vita tax preparer If a debt is canceled under a bankruptcy proceeding, the amount canceled is not income. Vita tax preparer However, the canceled debt reduces other tax benefits to which the debtor would otherwise be entitled. Vita tax preparer See Debt Cancellation, later.
