We were able to include our rent in the state of Pennsylvania. We were not allowed to included any taxes. You should seek the advice of a lawyer though to find out what can and what can not be included in your filing.

This can get complicated, but the main question is, was the rent past due when you filed the bankruptcy? If so, was the landlord included in the list of creditors?

He isn't. Even if a landlord file for bankruptcy, he is still entitled to collect the rent from tenants.

Conversely, if the tenant files for bankruptcy he is still obligated to pay the rent to landlord, although he may be no longer obligated to pay any back rent if such arrears is part of the bankruptcy list.
