Can I Include My Taxes If I Go Bankrupt?

In this video, Richard Killen, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee in Ontario with offices in Durham region (Pickering & Oshawa) talks about whether a person’s income tax debt can be included in a personal bankruptcy in Ontario.

Something that comes as a big surprise to a lot of people is when they find out an income tax debt, an ordinary income tax debt is something that is dischargeable in a bankruptcy or can be taken care of in a consumer proposal. The people of Durham or people from across the Greater Toronto Area ask me that question numerous times. It is not a strange thing as ordinary income tax debt is treated as a debt.

There is nothing special about the fact it is a debt owed to the government. A debt to the government is not anything special in a bankruptcy situation. Therefore, in a bankruptcy in Durham or anywhere in Ontario, a tax debt is dischargeable.

If you are behind on your taxes or are have other debt problems, consider talking to one of our trustees and debt experts. We can help you review all your options for debt relief.
