A requirement of all bankruptcy cases is that your last four (4) tax returns be filed. Failure to file these returns may result in the bankruptcy case being dismissed. Another reason to file the tax returns before filing bankruptcy is that only so much of that refund is protected. Many people lose their tax refunds when they file bankruptcy, but this can almost always be avoided.
