With the plethora of facts that you provided, it is difficult to know where to begin.

Not an immigration question. Redirect your question to a CPA or tax attorney.
Attorney Robert Brown's (former INS Director, 1972-99) reply to your question is general in nature, and does not constitute legal advice as all facts are known to him. For specific advice or representation you should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law. Mr. Brown's reply on AVVO does not create an attorney/client relationship not constitute legal advice.
I think you are asking about the discharge of taxes in bankruptcy, yes? The law governing what can and what cannot be discharged is complicated, and worse, its presently uncertain. Some of the changes Congress made in the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 were not well drafted, are their meaning is still being sorted out in the Courts. (Coincidentally, I recently organized a symposium on this topic in Baltimore).
To figure out if your taxes can be discharged requires a detailed review of the facts. I strongly encourage you to consult with an attorney who is familiar with the discharge of taxes in bankruptcy.
