Taxes and Bankruptcy: Like Salt and Pepper

by | March 15, 2016

I would estimate that 50 percent of people who make an appointment with a bankruptcy attorney never show up.

Why do you think this is?

I have come to the conclusion that people think bankruptcy is scary so they just want to keep avoiding it. However, there is one thing I have noticed about people who have shown up to see me and eventually recovered from financial disasters. What do these people have in common?

These people decide to draw a line in the sand and jump to the other side. They make the intentional step to do something about their financial crisis. And if there was a ever a time to draw a line in the sand, it would be now. I will tell you why.

Several of our clients pay for their bankruptcies with their tax refunds. This might not sound like the way you want to spend your long-awaited tax refund, but the truth is that this one-time expense will pay off tenfold in your future.

Just a few of the perks of that financial move include: Creditors will not be calling your home. Your credit card debt will be forgiven. And you will have that “wiggle room” to live your life again.

So my question to you this tax season is: Which side of the line do you want to stand on this year? I hope you will decide to stand on this side where your life will finally change. As you take that step into financial recovery, remember that Klein Law Group will not only help you declare bankruptcy, but we will also get you on the path to a “normal” life by enrolling you in the 7 Steps to a 720 Credit score program so that your credit score can transform in as little as 12 or 24 months.

Bankruptcy does not have to be scary. For many people, it is a smart way to restart with a clean slate and use the tools of the 720 Credit Score Program to restore your credit.
