Taxes are a debt that are included and cleared by the filing of a bankruptcy. The date you file for bankruptcy is cut-off for what can be cleared by the bankruptcy. So any taxes owing up to and including the date you file are released. As part of that a special tax return called the pre-bankruptcy tax return is done by your trustee and this will calculate the amount of tax in the current year that you will be released from by the bankruptcy.
