A Chapter 13 is an Effective Method to Stave off Foreclosure and Save a Home

If you do a Chapter 13 and you owe that, you’re actually going to pay it back through the Chapter 13.  So, by the end of the Chapter 13, you’ll get it discharged and you won’t owe the tax liability anymore.  So, the IRS can’t come knocking on your door after the bankruptcy and say “Hey, we’re still here” and that can happen in a Chapter 7.  So, if you’re not careful and you don’t know what you’re doing, you can still face tax liability after Chapter 7, that won’t be the case in a 13.  Now, going back to your previous case you had asked, this has kind of popped into my head.
