Talk to your accountant first. It sounds like you may not have taken into account business expenses and/or depreciation when you filed your bankruptcy papers.

Get another Accountant, one who knows what they are doing, before you file anything.

The very specific details matter. Who knows if you are interpreting things correctly. Honestly I would generally trust the accountant filing the correct information from what you gave him more than your interpretation of it. There's likely reasons he filed things that way you may not fully understand. Until you understand why things were filed that way you shouldn't assume it was a mistake. Regardless you are getting in way over your head. Assuming you are unwilling to hire a lawyer you would at least need to pay an accountant to look over this mess. You need to be careful amending returns since you could end up owing the IRS a ton of money, be charged with tax fraud and bankruptcy won't save you from them.
