You can file but it requires careful planning. you need a lawyer.
The trustee keeps a pro rata share based on the day of filing. Best bet usually is wait to file the BK until after you receive and spend the refund.
Compassion from the IRS ? No. But you can sort of negotiate by setting up a payment plan.
Better find an attorney that you can trust.
You can file now but before you do you must consult with a competent bankruptcy attorney so your entire financial situation can be assessed. Generally filing prior to entry of judgement is a good idea but not always.

Probably since you are liable for payment.
Hold your ground if you are not at fault.
