Reporting a bankrupty on a credit check application

If a bankruptcy has been discharged over 10 years, do I need to report it on a credit check application even if the application asks if you have "ever" filed for a bankrupty?  If yes, since the bankruptcy is legally removed from your credit report in 10 years can they use that information against me?

You should answer honestly. Even if it is no longer on your credit report it is still on public record and if they do a public records search it will show up.

you can try leaving the question blank, just skipping over it.
