Bankruptcy Code Requires Ohio Taxes be Filed



Ohio State Department of Taxation Now Enforcing Code


Federal bankruptcy code requires that for tax periods ending within four years of the bankruptcy filing, all required tax forms must be filed with the appropriate taxing authority prior to the bankruptcy meeting of creditors. Until recently in Ohio the enforcement of this code fell most heavily onto federal taxes, thus many Ohio bankruptcies were filed with Ohio state taxation remaining in an estimated or non-filed status.


Ohio State Department of Taxation Notification

Now, much to the surprise of debtors and many bankruptcy attorneys, the Ohio State Department of Taxation is enforcing compliance with §1308 (the section of the Federal Bankruptcy Code that requires tax forms to be filed prior to the meeting of creditors).


I received a notification letter from the Ohio Department of Taxation, now what?

If you have been notified, you should take immediate action. Consult with your bankruptcy attorney, and file your taxes. At Sheppard Law Offices we understand the intricacies of both bankruptcy and tax code law. Even if you are working with another Ohio bankruptcy attorney, our office can take care of getting your taxes prepared in order that your bankruptcy may proceed.


What can I do to prevent delays in my bankruptcy, or worse?

At Sheppard Law Offices we serve as both a debt relief agency and a tax service. This means that you can have your Ohio state taxes completed by someone with detailed knowledge of bankruptcy code and what you will be facing throughout the entire process.
