Blog: US Bankruptcy Court Ruling: Scientologists Matt and Kathy Feshbach Cannot Discharge $3.8 Million in Income Taxes - 2017-11-05
An excellent article in Forbes by Jay D. Adkisson concerns Scientologists Matt and Kathy Feshbach. Adkisson's article was the feature subject of a recent column Tony Ortega's Underground Bunker. The community commentary was fascinating.
Essentially, the US Bankruptcy Court refused to allow the Fessbach's to discharge $3.8 million in their Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
In her 40 page ruling, US Bankruptcy Judge Catherine McEwen cited both the Fessbach's refusal to curb their lavish spending and large donations to their church (Scientology) as among the reasons for refusing to discharge their substantial tax debt via bankruptcy.
