Income tax Refund on \”post\” Return

September 18th, 2007 by Questions

my trustee completed a pre and post bankruptcy return in the year I filed for bankruptcy. I would have received a refund for the year had it not been for the bankruptcy. However, the post return shows a refund as well. Should the post return refund come to me because it is my understanding that if I owed money on the post return I would have to pay it because it was after the date of bankruptcy.

Typically what happens with post bankruptcy returns is they are assigned over to the trustee to create a general benefit to creditors (i.e. it is lost if you file for bankrutpcy).

However you are also correct that if you owed the money on the post it is a debt you would be responsible for as it occured after the date of bankruptcy.
