Does an S Corporation have to file a Schedule K-1 after it has filed for bankruptcy?

Absolutely. The filing of bankruptcy does not alter your obligation to report and file taxes, except perhaps to make it more nessasary. The IRS is a creditor, your return is what will be used to determine how much they have a right to file a claim for. If you do not file, they will either determine your tax....(a bad thing)...and file a claim, or you may not relieve the tax in bankruptcy and be liable in the future. Agreeably, you may have losses, and not have a tax or income to pass to the shareholders...but you would have a loss to pass on.
