Typically, upon completion of a Chapter 13 plan, a debtor can expect to receive a discharge and a "fresh start" free of his or her prior obligations. What happens, however, if the debtor dies before the end of the five-year plan term, but the liquidation minimum under Section 1328(b)(2) has been met? Is the debtor still entitled to a discharge, or do the prior debts now become claims against the decedent's probate estate? In a recent decision, In re Lizzi, 2015 Bankr. LEXIS 1098 (Bankr. N.D.N.Y. Apr. 3, 2015), a New York bankruptcy court addressed this question in favor of the debtors over the objection of the Internal Revenue Service by finding that a deceased debtor may obtain a hardship discharge.
