Why does my bankruptcy attorney ask me for this - Tax Returns (pt 2)

The bankruptcy law requires debtors to be current with their tax filings. The most current year must be filed with the trustee 7 days prior to the creditors meeting. Also, the bankruptcy attorney needs to verify annual income the two previous years of income for the filing of the case. The easiest way to confirm this is to see the tax returns. I request the last 4 years of tax returns.

If debtors do not have copies of their tax returns, they can request transcripts of their returns from the IRS on this webpage - Transcripts are acceptable.

Asking for documents is not to make people crazy. These documents are the proof requested by the trustee.
