Income tax return
February 18th, 2008 by Questions
I claimed bankruptcy in February 2006. I was discharged in January 2007. In April 2007, an accountant did my 2006 taxes. I owed $2700, which I have paid. In May 2007, my trustee contacted me to advise that they should have done my 2006 taxes (pre and post bankruptcy for that year). I submitted all the necessary paperwork to the trustee. A reassessment was done by CRA and I have now received a $3100 refund. CRA says the money is mine because I have been discharged. Does the trustee have any rights to this money?
