Discharging Tax Debts in Arizona

A discharge is a permanent court order indicating that discharged creditors are forbidden by the bankruptcy court to pursue collection activities against a debtor in connection with the debtor’s personal liability. However, this does not extend to debts that were not discharged.

Unfortunately, most tax debts are not dischargeable. Much like student loans, child support and alimony, you are stuck paying tax debts no matter what action you take in bankruptcy court. This is the case for most federal, state and county taxes.
