This article analyzes the situations in which a bankruptcy filing could be used as an alternative to the expiration of the statute of limitations on collections and sets forth various considerations that should be reviewed by the practitioner prior to a bankruptcy filing. Practitioners are cautioned that there are many collateral consequences resulting from a taxpayer's bankruptcy petition filing and each case must be analyzed carefully in light of the interplay of the Bankruptcy Code, the Internal Revenue Code and the sparse case law available in this area.
