Powers v. United States (In re Powers)

Plaintiff debtor filed an adversary proceeding against defendant, the Colorado Department of Revenue ("DOR") challenging an assessment by the DOR for additional state income tax that the DOR claimed that the debtor owed for two tax years after the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") reported changes in the debtor's federal income discovered through an audit. The parties filed cross-motions for summary judgment.
Ruling: 
An additional state tax income assessment was deemed nondischargeable since the debtor had failed to file an amended state tax return required after the IRS had audited the debtor and reported changes in the debtor's income tax.
