Two important facts regarding how chapter 13 will affect your taxes: 1) all income taxes filed within 240 days of your initial filing date must be paid in full to get approval and 2) all disposable income must go towards your chapter 13 bankruptcy (this includes your tax refund).
Filing bankruptcy should only be done as a last resort. Many people file bankruptcy (13 or otherwise) when they didn't need to. Debt does not always have to be paid back. And you can fix your credit without it.
