How to Claim Hardship
The IRS evaluates each claim of hardship on a case by case basis, meaning that there are no exact requirements one needs to meet. However, the IRS will use some of the following questions to evaluate your status:
- Are you disabled and unable to work or bring in income?
- If you were forced to pay your debt, would you be unable to pay for: living, food, transportation and utility costs?
- Do you or a family member have outstanding medical needs?
While there are many ways to qualify for hardship status, the process of doing so is time-consuming and complicated, so seeking the help of skilled tax attorneys may be in your best interest.
