Yes - that is based on federal law.
Regardless in which state you live - you might be eligible to file for bankruptcy protection and some of outstanding debts may be discharges.

Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax. I can assist with your bankruptcy question in Washington State.
Substitute for return assessments are not dischargeable in Washington State.
In Re Smythe is a Washington State based bankruptcy decision on point. I'm out, IRS prevailed in arguing their SFR assessments were nondeductible, even after taxpayer filed actual 1040 returns for the years in question.
Typically replacing SFR returns, and waiting the needed 240 days, allows post three year returns to be discharged.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
