Bankruptcy's Automatic Stay on Tax Collection Efforts


The filing of a bankruptcy petition will immediately stop all tax collections, liens or other attachments by creating an automatic stay. The automatic stay stops all forms of tax collection and provides the relief and time necessary to create a tax resolution based upon the overriding provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. The Bankruptcy Code even provides for the removal of attachments, liens, levies and garnishments already in effect prior to the date of the bankruptcy filing.
