Unforgiven No Longer

July, 2016

                Daniel J. Weiner and Jeffery J. Sattler published their article, “Unforgiven No Longer: Ninth Circuit BAP Authorizes Discharge of Old Tax Debt from Untimely Returns,” in the July 2016 edition of the American Bankruptcy Institute Journal.  The article calls for a reversal of the current law that prohibits debtors from discharging all tax debt arising from untimely filed tax returns, and supports this call by relying upon a recent ruling by a bankruptcy appellate panel in the Ninth Circuit.  The article received the distinction of serving as the Journal’s cover story.
