Aaron Carter

Everyone Got Screwed ...

Except the Pooch

Good news for Aaron Carter ... he doesn't owe anyone money anymore, because his long list of creditors just got royally screwed.

Carter has been relieved of his massive debts by a bankruptcy judge.  Just how massive you ask? He owed more than $2 million, and was worth a meager $8K.  Even his dog was worthless, valued at zero.

And speaking of zero ... that's exactly what his creditors are going to get -- even his long lost Uncle Sam got the shaft.  Aaron's $1.3 million tax debt was also excused.

On the bright side -- Aaron completed a credit counseling class and a course in personal finance management.

So maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks ... unless he's worthless.

Wow. he owed 1.3M in taxes and they were excused. Who does he know? Idk of anyone who owed any tax amount and were about to get out of paying all of it. A portion or percentage, but not all. Insult to injury, the average american who has a tax debt doesn't owe anywhere near that amount. SMH the system ****s the life out of regular people every day.

If you add up all the money these dead beat celebrities get away with not paying in taxes, all the people who get into tax debt then get it lowered/dismissed through those cheesy commercials you see on TV....you could totally eliminate the $1tril in student debt....but why help the working/middle class?

This is a somewhat misleading article. You've written this up as though Aaron Carter got away with something that nobody else could. This is a very common Chapter 7 scenario. Yes, even tax debts - if old enough - can be discharged in bankruptcy. And all consumer debtors have to take courses in credit counseling and financial management in order to file and get their discharge.

It's a common misconception that just because you are rich or were rich - that you cannot qualify for bankruptcy. You shouldn't post articles like this if your only purpose is to rile the masses.

Another douche bag living beyond his means. How do you amass that debt when you did one song when you were 12? Oh that's right, spent your money on meth. Dumb ass.
