Not having filed your 2010 taxes yet is not the reason your case may be dismissed, as you are not required to file your taxes before they are due - on April 15 or October 15 with an extension. However, if your case is dismissed because the court did not get the plan on time, your attorney can file a Motion to Reinstate the case. This Motion - along with the missing plan - must be filed within a certain amount of time after the Dismissal, and the timeframe will be listed on the Notice of Dismissal.
In other words, if your Chapter 13 case is dismissed, you do get a second chance.
