I will try to best answer your question.
Yes your statement is basically correct. There are exceptions. For example, any trust fund or withholding taxes or sales taxes are never dischargeable. However interest or penalty on the same maybe. In addition, the time frame for when the three years begins to run is from the date of the filing of the return. Not the tax year when it was due. There's also an exception if the IRS obtained a lien or if you'd filed a previous bankruptcy that may have caused the IRS not to be able to pursue for a period of time then it would toll (delay)the running of yhe 3 year timr period.
I hope this information is helpful and I wish you the best of luck.
Correct. But bankruptcy law is federal and the rule you asked about won't change based on county.
