Fish for a Day

Today TaxMama managed to crash the TaxQuips Forum. We’ll get it back up this morning. In the meantime, let’s talk about some of the issues that keep cropping up in the questions that I’ve seen these past few weeks.  

Should I File BK?

Today TaxMama hears from Bruce in the TaxQuips Forum who needs to make a decision. “My business failed last year and my wife and I are mulling over whether to declare personal bankruptcy due to this.  Towards the end of the life of the business, I put a lot of money on my credit cards, […]

Today TaxMama hears from Gina in San Diego who tells us. “I filed bankruptcy in 2005, hoping to clear back taxes. All taxes had been filed and assessed. However, my back taxes went untouched by the bankruptcy. Had I known that would occur, I would not have filed. What went wrong?”
