What a tax lawyer can teach you about bankruptcy

By: Michael T. Hagen, M.D.

Author of “Tax Justice for All: A Guide to Making Your Case for Taxpayer Protection” and “Why Taxpayers Shouldn’t Get Too Hurt by Tax Lawsuits”The term “bankrupt” is often used to refer to a debtor who is unable to pay his debts because of bankruptcy.

That is a dangerous label, according to Michael T Hagen.

In his latest book, Tax Justice for Everyone: A guide to making your case for taxpayer protection, Hagen describes how a tax attorney can help a debtor get out of bankruptcy and make it out of the tax law mess he or she’s in.

Hagan is an assistant professor at Georgetown University Law Center’s law school.

He’s the author of Tax Justice For All, available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
