Will my ex-spouse still receive her federal refund if I file for bankruptcy and I’m paying 100% of the tax debt? 1 Answers as of June 10, 2014
I'm divorced and I'm filing for bankruptcy. I owe back taxes and filing a chapter 13 paying off 100% of taxes once I file. Will my ex-spouse be able to still receive her federal refund since this is my tax responsibility and is outlined in decree?
