Hello and thank you for your question here on Just Answer.
Yes, the owners of a corporation are personally liable for any IRS debts incurred by the business.
When a corporation files for bankruptcy it does not get a discharge. The discharge is the court order saying you do not owe the money any more. Therefore, when a corporation files bankruptcy the debt does not go away and you would still be personally liable for it, in this case with the IRS.
