Can you discharge 2 year old tax in bankruptcy? No, it is against the bankruptcy law.

I filed ch 7 in 2012. Will federal income taxes I owed to IRS in 2010 be discharged? I heard about some 3 year rule, but am not sure what it is. Can anyone explain here?

Well, since you filed in 2012, hence your 2010 debts won't be discharged. The 3-year rule essentially says that any taxes owed 3 years prior to filing bankruptcy shall not be discharged. This means your taxes from 2009 onwards aren't dischargeable.
