So I have some derogatory issues on my background that I am really nervous about.
Beginning in 2012, I owned a business. In 2013 I was furloughed, 2014 my business took a turn for the worse. I ended up filing for bankruptcy in late 2015 to resolve my debts and start over.
I was audited for 2013 tax year for my business, and have a $9k back tax owed, on a payment plan but have also retained an attorney to fight it while I pay it, and try and amend my return as well to mitigate tax burden.
In late 2016, I was charged with unlawful mischief (misdemeanor). I went through court diversion and resolved the issue. The charges were dropped or dismissed, not sure which would apply to the situation. After 2 years the records are sealed and expunged.
Question: I know this is a lot of derogatory information, and I just have a hard time not feeling like I’m going to get denied my renewal. Ive had a clearance for 10 years now, work full time for the government and have never had it revoked through these circumstances. Should my stomach be doing flips like it is right now?
