My wife and I just had our second child. we are in our mid 20's and fell really behing in our debts. I do not want to file bankruptcy. Collectors are calling everyday, they don't even want to hear my story. Can I close out my IRA and pay the taxes when I file for 2000. Instead of paying taxes now? what should I do?
