By FindLaw Staff on September 16, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In the IRS's appeal from a bankruptcy court's order confirming debtors' Chapter 12 reorganization plan, the order is affirmed where: 1) a Chapter 12 debtor may treat postpetition income taxes imposed on the debtor's income earned during the pendency of the case as administrative expenses under 11 U.S.C. section 503; 2) debtors' sale of their slaughter hogs in 2004 constituted the sale of a "farm asset used in the debtor's farming operation" under section 1222(a)(2)(A); and 3) the "marginal method" was the correct method to determine the allocation of taxes between priority and non-priority claims under section 1222(a)(2)(A).
