What is a bankruptcy discharge?

What is a bankruptcy discharge? When a debt is discharged in bankruptcy, it does not have to be repaid — but not all debts can be discharged.

Dischargeable vs. Non-Dischargeable

The US Bankruptcy Code is clear as to which debts can be discharged and which cannot:

Dischargeable debts

  • Medical bills
  • Credit card bills
  • Business loans
  • Personal loans

Non-dischargeable debts

  • Taxes
  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Court ordered fines
