Illinois 1040ez irs. Illinois 1040ez gov/pub908. Illinois 1040ez What's New Expiration of provision for catch-up contributions for IRC section 401(k) participants whose employer filed bankruptcy. Illinois 1040ez  The Pension Protection Act of 2006, P. Illinois 1040ez L. Illinois 1040ez 109-280, previously allowed additional contributions of up to $7,000 in a traditional or Roth IRA for employees who participated in an IRC section 401(k) plan of an employer that filed bankruptcy in an earlier year. Illinois 1040ez This provision was not extended for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2010. Illinois 1040ez Automatic 6-month extension of time to file a bankruptcy estate return now available for individuals in Chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy. Illinois 1040ez  Beginning June 24, 2011, the IRS clarified in T. Illinois 1040ez D. Illinois 1040ez 9531 that there is available an automatic 6-month extension of time to file a bankruptcy estate income tax return for individuals in Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings upon filing a required application. Illinois 1040ez The previous extension of time to file a bankruptcy estate return was 5 months. Illinois 1040ez Reminders The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) of 2005. Illinois 1040ez  The changes to the U. Illinois 1040ez S. Illinois 1040ez Bankruptcy Code enacted by BAPCA are incorporated throughout this publication. Illinois 1040ez Debtors filing under chapters 7, 11, 12, and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code must file all applicable federal, state, and local tax returns that become due after a case commences. Illinois 1040ez Failure to file tax returns timely or obtain an extension can cause a bankruptcy case to be converted to another chapter or dismissed. Illinois 1040ez In chapter 13 cases, the debtor must file all required tax returns for tax periods ending within 4 years of the filing of the bankruptcy petition. Illinois 1040ez Photographs of missing children. Illinois 1040ez  The IRS is a proud partner with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Illinois 1040ez Photographs of missing children selected by the Center may appear in this publication on pages that would otherwise be blank. Illinois 1040ez You can help bring these children home by looking at the photographs and calling 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) if you recognize a child. Illinois 1040ez Introduction This publication is not intended to cover bankruptcy law in general, or to provide detailed discussions of the tax rules for the more complex corporate bankruptcy reorganizations or other highly technical transactions. Illinois 1040ez Additionally, this publication is not updated on an annual basis and may not reflect recent developments in bankruptcy or tax law. Illinois 1040ez If you need more guidance on the bankruptcy or tax laws applicable to your case, you should seek professional advice. Illinois 1040ez This publication explains the basic federal income tax aspects of bankruptcy. Illinois 1040ez A fundamental goal of the bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress is to give an honest debtor a financial “fresh start”. Illinois 1040ez This is accomplished through the bankruptcy discharge, which is a permanent injunction (court ordered prohibition) against the collection of certain debts as a personal liability of the debtor. Illinois 1040ez Bankruptcy proceedings begin with the filing of either a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court, or in certain cases an involuntary petition filed by creditors. Illinois 1040ez This filing creates the bankruptcy estate. Illinois 1040ez The bankruptcy estate generally consists of all of the assets the individual or entity owns on the date the bankruptcy petition was filed. Illinois 1040ez The bankruptcy estate is treated as a separate taxable entity for individuals filing bankruptcy petitions under chapter 7 or 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, discussed later. Illinois 1040ez The tax obligations of taxable bankruptcy estates are discussed later under Individuals in Chapter 7 or 11. Illinois 1040ez Generally, when a debt owed to another person or entity is canceled, the amount canceled or forgiven is considered income that is taxed to the person owing the debt. Illinois 1040ez If a debt is canceled under a bankruptcy proceeding, the amount canceled is not income. Illinois 1040ez However, the canceled debt reduces other tax benefits to which the debtor would otherwise be entitled. Illinois 1040ez See Debt Cancellation, later.

In addition to VITA, the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program offers free tax help for all taxpayers, particularly those who are 60 years of age and older, specializing in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues unique to seniors. The IRS-certified volunteers who provide tax counseling are often retired individuals associated with non-profit organizations that receive grants from the IRS.
