I called the Comptroller of MD last week to get a tax transcript to see if my Maryland state taxes were going to be dischargeable in a bankruptcy I have filed. The representative said the easiest way to get the transcript would be to visit my local Comptroller of MD tax office. Unfortunately, the transcript that the man gave me was not like the transcript you get from the IRS (it is definitely not as detailed).
To make a long story short I spoke with the State of Maryland today (their bankruptcy department) and the lady I spoke with said that the taxes are dischargeable in bankruptcy. I asked her about the lien that had been placed against me. I was previously unable to renew my tags and had to hire a lawyer to get them to allow me to renew them. I told her I was worried about this because the rep from the local office said that after they allowed me to renew my tags the lien was once again placed on the car for the next time I need to renew my tags and that in 2015 I will not be able to renew my license. I was always under the impression that the lien stayed with you when you get your taxes discharged even though you no longer owe the taxes. The rep who I spoke with today who sounded questionable to me said that the lien would be released once my taxes were discharged in bankruptcy. Is this common practice in Maryland or is she incorrect?
