United States v. Mitchell

Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court's finding that debtor did not willfully evade taxes was not clearly erroneous and debt was dischargeable.
Procedural posture: 
Plaintiff challenged the bankruptcy court's finding that defendant debtor's federal tax liabilities for 1998 through 2002 were not excepted from discharge pursuant to 11 U.S.C.S. § 523(a)(1)(C). The bankruptcy court found that the debtor did not willfully evade his income taxes and, therefore, did not satisfy the 11 U.S.C.S. § 523(a)(1)(C) exception to 11 U.S.C.S. § 727(b)'s general discharge of debts in bankruptcy.
