You know what I mean: tax time!
For a lot of people, the means more debt gets thrown on the pile because they wind up owing money. For many people, tax time is a bit of a blessing because they get a tax refund. Being self employed, it’s been a long time since I saw a tax refund, but I haven’t forgotten what it’s like to get that “free” money in the mail! Mail-that tell’s you how long it’s been…
Anyway, this time of year gets busy for us bankruptcy attorneys in that a lot of our clients (and many more potential clients) take their tax refund and put it to work cleaning up their financial issues. Good for them for taking control of their situations and getting a fresh start!
And since we accept payments from our clients for their fees, a lot of our clients on payment plans bring their tax refunds in and pay off their bankruptcy case so we can get their case filed to start the bankruptcy process.
Either way, it means we get busy, even when total bankruptcy case filings are down like they have been the last few years.
So, if you’re thinking maybe now is the time to get out of debt and get a fresh start, give us a call at 661-243-1737 (Bakersfield) or 951-296-6775 (Temecula Valley area) to set up your free, no-obligation consultation. Even if you decide that bankruptcy isn’t for you, you’re always better off having all the information before making a decision.
We’ll see you soon!
