Some debts, such as taxes (including payroll taxes, most student loans and unpaid wages) are not forgiven in bankruptcy even if you file, and will not be discharged even if you are given bankruptcy relief of your other debts.

Can you file bankruptcy when you debt is federal and state income taxes?

You can file bankruptcy at any time you like, but I will tell you that bankruptcy court does not have the authority to drop the taxes. The IRS or State may allow a payment plan instead of allowing them to begin confiscating property. You will still have to pay the taxes due and it may be to your benefit to work out a payment plan directly with tax department and not have to pay the legal and court fees involved with the bankruptcy.
