Bankruptcy and Debt Relief

Often times individuals with tax debt are struggling with other debt as well. Bankruptcy is a great option because it is very affordable and can take care of multiple financial issues at one time. Bankruptcy can also immediately stop IRS bank and wage levies, judgment creditor bank and wage levies, seizures, foreclosures, and repossessions. When deciding whether or not to file bankruptcy, it is very important to discuss your case with a qualified tax and bankruptcy attorney. Not all debts are dischargeable and some tax and/or tax liens may remain after your bankruptcy case. Due to the very complex nature of tax and the requirements for tax dischargeability in bankruptcy, many bankruptcy attorneys are not able to provide their clients a comprehensive analysis of their debt and how it will be treated in bankruptcy. Our firm is able to give clients a complete analysis and post bankruptcy options for any debt that may survive the bankruptcy.

Sometime individuals would rather try to negotiate with their creditors instead of filing bankruptcy. This can be a great option for individuals with credit card debt or large amounts of unsecure debt. In order for debt settlement to be successful, the individual will typically need to have around 20-30% of the total they owe to offer one-time lump sum payments to creditors. Many individuals are not able to gather the funds together to make debt settlement work, but people who can on average tend to save 70-80%. It is important to remember that debt settlement can have tax consequences, which you should discuss with our Atlanta Tax Attorney prior to settling.

Alyssa immediately impressed me with her competence. That was most important to me. How well will my attorney do their job for me? Alyssa knocked it out of the park for me. Her understanding of our overly complex Tax laws never ceased to amaze me. Alyssa seemed to know every trick in the book to achieve the best results. Alyssa analyzed my state of affairs and delivered better results than I had hoped for. Before meeting Alyssa, I was wary about whether my attorney would have _my_ best interest at heart? I did not expect a cheerful attorney; What a difference a smile makes when you're going through troubled waters. Alyssa deserves my highest recommendation. I just wish I could express my appreciation better. Job well done, Alyssa! Thank you! Anonymous

I contacted Alyssa after I was wrongfully imprisoned due to a clerical error by Fulton Co. Alyssa listened with empathy to my entire story and took all of the correct steps in handling my case. Alyssa updated me frequently on my case so that I could rest assure it was in the right hands. Alyssa was able to get my case dropped and my money returned very quickly. Mrs. Whatley came highly recommended to me and I see why. Alyssa's professionalism, experience, compassion, and positive attitude was exactly what I needed during this time of uncertainty. Kaitlin
