Can tax obligations be discharged during a bankruptcy?

When individuals file for bankruptcy, they usually believe that they cannot discharge their tax obligations. However, some of these tax obligations may be discharged in a bankruptcy filing.

In some cases, none of the tax obligations can be discharged. Certain obligations, though, may discharged depending on the type of tax owed, the age of the tax obligation, and whether the individual filed a tax return.
