Filing Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on Georgia Sales Tax
By: Mansoor Ansari Attorney At Law
If your Georgia sales tax certficate of registraction has been revoked in the Atlanta area and the GDOR has rejected your installment agreement, Chapter 11 Bankruptcy may be your only option. A payment plan for unremitted sales tax is usually your only bite at the apple.  Once you default on your payment plan, it is completely within the GDOR’s discretion to allow you another chance.  This is usually based on your track record and credit history.  Your business can file Chapter 11 bankruptcy on sales tax owed to the GDOR. With the new law of sales tax evasion in Illinois, not paying back unremitted sales tax is a felony and punishable by time in prison. Bankruptcy should always be used as a last resort, when all other options of collecting money from family, friends, banks, and other commercial lenders has failed. Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on sales tax owed to the GDOR provides the debtor with an automatic stay of protection. The business will incorporate all of its debt, not just sales tax, and propose an offer of payment to the U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee. Call our law firm to discuss your options to file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
