What if I Owe Back Taxes in a Colorado Bankruptcy?

Filing bankruptcy in Colorado may eliminate some of your back income taxes. The best way to find out if your income taxes are dischargeable through bankruptcy is to contact an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. This is one of the most complex areas of bankruptcy and providing definitive answers is difficult without knowing the specifics of your situation.

If you have questions about delinquent income taxes and you are struggling with your finances, it's time to talk to a lawyer.

At The Law Offices of W. Robert Montgomery in Lakewood, Colorado, we know how stressful your situation is, and we have helped many people facing similar financial problems.
