The bankruptcy court has the power to decide certain tax disputes. When consumer files bankruptcy, he must list all of his debts, including tax debts. The court has the power to determine whether or not the debts listed in a bankruptcy are valid and legitimate debts and whether or not the debt amount is what the creditor claims it to be. Therefore, if a consumer disputes the amount of the debt, including a tax debt, the bankruptcy court has the power to determine whether or not the tax debt is actually owed and if so in what amount.
