Can you file for a tax refund while in a chapter 7 bankruptcy?
Filing Return While in Bankruptcy . Yes, you still have to file your taxes as usual. Any refund will probably be appropriated by the trustee and treated as a nonexempt asset, which will be used for repayment of creditors.. Adding As indicated, this is one of your assets and must be disclosed to the creditors committee as something they can use to pay your debts. They will probably ask about it if you don't provide it. They've seen it many times before.
If you have filed for bankruptcy can you keep your tax refund rebate?
I believe the best way to look at this is: The money your being refunded is an overpayment made for earnings at some time. If those earnings were pre-petition, so had you had the money it would have been part of the BK assets, then the refund should be too. (The only reason the BK didn't have it as asset to start was because you over estimated a payment...you could have over estimated and had all you earnings withheld...but that certainly wouldn't mean you should get it all back now because you had it essentially on deposit someplace else).
What can you use your income tax refund on if your filing chapter 7?
Until you file, your money is yours to use. Financial counseling would be an excellent choice.. However, you have debt obligations you promised to pay...that would be a good honorable place to use it. (If you don't think doing the honorable thing is important, then don't complain when others don't care about what harm they do to you). Anything you do for some extended time, especially using any asset or trying to make a benefit, before BK can be challenged in the BK (and reversed, etc.)...as being done preferentially in anticipation of BK. And here to, the BK Court doesn't like anyone doing those things, so they may decide to not be as favorable to you as they could be. (And if you swear to them you didn't act that way (and you will be swearing to it), and they can see you did..well that can be criminal purjery).
If you live in a community property state and only your husband files for bankruptcy and you file your taxes separately can the bankruptcy court take your portion of your tax refund?
Yes, unless you also file papers for an "Injured Spouse" which may or may not relieve you also of the tax burden.
Should you wait to file chapter 13 after tax refund?
Either way they will want a tax return filed before filing for chapter 13. If you are expecting a refund then they will seize it if it is after so to keep the money file first and wait for the return, it will be considered as part of your income. If you owe it is better to know the amount before filing.
Can the bankruptcy court take your entire tax refund if married filing jointly?
Presuming not a community property state and only one of you filed BK? The part that can be shown relevant to the non-BK spouses earnings and overpayment would be exempt from claim. (If that person didn't contribute to the overpaid withholding, they probably wouldn't be deemed entitled to a refund).
What form do you file to get federal refund check the extra one if you do not have to file taxes?
The answer is a little more complicated than one form number. To get your extra tax rebate, you must file an income tax report even if you normally do not have to because of limited and/or tax free income. If you qualify to file the 1040EZ (the simpliest tax return) that is the one to go with. If you want to itemized deductions, own a farm or a buisness, or just about anything that makes your tax report more complicated than just your salary and/or a few dividends, you will have to file the more complicated 1040 form (of which there are several).. What to do? Most cities offer free tax preparation or advice through a variety of organizations. Or, call the IRS's toll free number and ask them.. Good luck
Will you ever get a tax refund again if you file chapter7 bankruptcy?
Sure. And you get one before and during C 7 too. Its just that a refund is a return of an overpayment, an amount that you put on deposit above what was needed if you will, and you hand it over so it can be used to pay the debts it would have been available for. After BK, if you overpay tax on any of those earnings, it is yours to do with as needed also.
Is there a fee for filing income taxes late if you're owed a refund?
No. All penalties with the IRS are based on a percentage of what you owe. If you don't owe anything, there is no penalty.. You should be aware, however, that you only have three years from the date the return was originally due (including extensions) to claim a refund or else it is lost forever. So as of today (6/11/2008) you can only still get a refund on your 2005, 2006, and 2007 returns.
When filing tax you owed money to the IRS instead of getting a refund when will you get your stimulis check?

If property taxes are not in your name can you file bankruotcy?
Of course having Prop taxes in your name is not a requirement for filing BK.For them to be included in your BK, you would have to prove they are a debt you are responsible for...perhaps through a lease or such...in which case the debt as part of the lease would be included.
Should you file for bankruptcy first and then file your taxes to keep you tax refund?
It makes no difference. The refund of your overpayment is an asset that is part of your BK anyway. It was overpaid using funds before your filing, that would/could have been used to pay debts..it is a pre-ptition asset...simply on deposit at the Gov't. When you file to receive it is irrelevant.
If you file a 1099 tax form can you file rapid refund?
Rapid refund and such are done by private companies and are fancy names for very expensive loans. If your paid on a 1099, you were required to make estimated tax payments through the year, and if you overpaid on those, and therefore have a refund coming, I suspect they would give you that loan. But if that's the case, as the last payment was due 12/15, you should have sent less...not sent a lot and then borrowed money at a huge charge waiting to file a return and get it back.
Can you file bankruptcy on property taxes?
ALL your property (all your assets) AND all your liabilities are included...always..you do not pick and chose. You cannot go BK on a speci Save fc debt. They are given different priorities, some debts may not be discharged (like child support), and some assets (like household goods, work tools), may not be used. Secured debts. (and property taxes are secured to the property being taxed), get first claim to the proceeds from that asset. Answer Real estate taxes cannot always be discharged in bankruptcy. Determining whether they can be discharged requires some investigation by an attorney who specializes in bankruptcy law. A secured debt for property taxes would be perfected by the recording of a tax lien in the land records.
If you file February 10 2009 will the trustee take your 2008 tax refund?
Very likely...the money being refunded is from what you overpaid into, essentially, a savings account at the IRS with your name on it. Had you had the correct amount withheld, the extra in your check would have rightfully been available to pay your debts with then (before filing BK). It is a pre-petition asset...like any bank account or such. You could have had much more withheld from your check easily, paid even fewer obligations....and then had a bigger refund...that doesn't mean you should get to keep it while others go unpaid.. In reality, many trustees ignore small amounts of refund.
How can you get your maximum refund if you already filed taxes?
file an additional information page to amend your tax refund and show the additional information and file it again, then just wait they will certainly contact you if you made a mistake. Where ever you get your taxes done can do this for you also.
Didn't file income tax last year will you still get refund this year?
That depends. If you didn't overpay your taxes through withholding or other means, you won't get a refund. If you were not required to file a tax return in 2007 and are due a refund, there is no reason you shouldn't get it. If you had income in 2007 that the IRS is aware of (say because it was reported on a W-2 or 1099) and that was sufficient to require the filing of a 2007 return, your refund may be held up until the 2007 issue is resolved. If you meant to ask "Is there still time for me to get a 2007 refund?" the answer is an emphatic yes. All you have to do is fill out your 2007 tax forms and mail them in. It's really that simple. Even if you didn't file a 2007 tax return, you should file a 2008 tax return on time if you are required to file for 2008. A lot of people, for one reason or another, neglect to file a tax return for a year or two. They then become scared and stop filing tax returns for future years. Even if you missed a return in the past, you should file this year's return on time. Each and every year you miss is a separate offense and subject to a whole new set of additional possible penalties. Not filing for 2008 will not help your problems from past years. In fact, it will compound your problems and make them orders of magnitude worse. If you should have filed taxes in 2007 or you were owed a refund from 2007, file your 2007 taxes now. And regardless of what you do about 2007, file your 2008 taxes on time.
Do you have to file taxes even if you getting refund?
Yes. Do you think the IRS should just presume that everybody who doesn't file doesn't owe any taxes? 26USC6012 requires anyone having more than a certain amount of income to file a tax return. 26USC7203 makes willful failure to file a return a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a $25,000 fine. Neither of these laws carry any requirement that you owe money. It is extremely rare, but people have been successfully criminally prosecuted for failure to file even though they might owe no money. See Spies v. United States , 317 U.S. 492, 496 (1943); United States v. Wade , 585 F.2d 573, 574 (5th Cir. 1978). Is the typical guy whose only source of income is a W-2 on which he had way too much tax withheld going to get prosecuted? No. Maybe if he gets arrested for something else like drugs, a tax charge might be piled onto his case. Or if he sends threatening letters to the IRS commissioner, they might take revenge. But not typically. People who have never had any income other than a W-2 forget one fact: The IRS does not know whether you owe any money until you file your taxes. A lot of people have income from other sources that does not get reported on a W-2. They owe income tax on that, too. And the IRS does not know that you have dependents or have deductions or whatever unless you file a tax return. They need that statement, sworn under penalty of perjury, of your income, deductions, exemptions, credits, and so on to properly calculate whether you owe taxes. If you don't send it to them, they will make certain worst-case assumptions about you and could even pursue you for taxes you don't owe. And if you don't file, the statute of limitations never starts running. That mean that the IRS can hound you over whether you owed taxes forever. There are also certain elections that need to be made on or before the filing date. Failure to make these elections in a timely manner means you forfeit the opportunity. For example, you can take a return of your current year IRA contribution or recharacterize a contribution up until October 15 of the next year, but only if you file your return (or an extension) on time, even if you don't owe money. Now many people will point to the fact that the civil penalty (as opposed to the rare criminal penalty) for filing late is based on the amount of money you owe. If you don't owe any money, the penalty is $0. (Note: some states impose penalties that may not be based on the amount you owe.) They then extrapolate that to mean you are not required to file and nothing will happen if you don't. These people do not know the big picture. And I don't know how many times I've seen people say "I always get a refund" but this year they don't. And they don't realize it because they haven't filled out their taxes. Or they make a mistake on their taxes and the IRS catches them. They end up paying thousands of dollars in needless failure to file penalties because they didn't file on time.

Can tax levy's be filed against tax refunds by property owners who have a court issued order for tenants to reimburse back rental fees as well as court costs?
I think your confsing terms and such. If you have a judgment against someone you can probably garnish their income or attach assets.

Individuals do not issue tax bills, tax levy's or the like - only governments.
Why should you file your tax return early when you expect a refund?
For a couple of reasons. 1. If you have allowed the government to use your money interest-free from the day you overpaid your taxes, you continue to lose the value of that money for each day you have not yet received it. 2. There are people who file bogus tax returns in your name, making claims for refunds that you will never see, costing billions of dollars every year, and making it very difficult for you to obtain a timely refund.
