Can I Use My Tax Return To File Bankruptcy in Georgia?

The answer is yes, and you’re not alone. According to recent research submitted to the National Bureau of Economic Research, approximately 200,000 Americans will use their tax refunds to pay for bankruptcy filing this year.  For many Georgians who have seen their debt go out of control due to events like job loss, foreclosure, or medical emergencies, filing bankruptcy is an excellent way to get a fresh start. 

A common question is: should you file your taxes before you file for bankruptcy? In most cases if you are expecting a refund the answer is yes.
