Q: Havent had to file a tax return in years cause I don’t make enough. Going bankrupt was wondering if irs will be notified
I make under the limit to have to pay taxes. But I was wondering if agency’s like the irs, Medicaid ( I’m on Medicaid) and other government departments are automatically notified when I file? Thanks
A: They are not automatically notified unless you owe them money. You will have to supply the last three years of tax returns or transcripts to your counsel and the Trustee in charge of your case.
A: No. They are not notified unless you owe them money.
Kenneth L. Sheppard Jr. agrees with this answer
A: No. You only list creditors on your bankruptcy schedules that you owe. In Ohio, you would be asked to provide your last two years of income tax returns to the trustee. However, if you are not required to file income tax returns, then that fact will be communicated to the trustee.
