Video: Are there tax consequences to filing bankruptcy?

No. Any debt forgiven or discharged in bankruptcy is not subject to tax. If you settle a claim outside of bankruptcy, or have a debt forgiven that forgiveness of debt may sometimes be considered personal income subject to tax. It's considered cancellation of debt income. However, in a bankruptcy there is no cancellation of debt income and no taxable event.
