Income Tax After Discharge

I am having a difficult time getting my trustee to return my calls in regards to my income tax this year. I filed in December `07 and was discharged in September`08. It has recently been brought to my attention that any GST cheques and the income tax I am to file this year is to be directed to my trustee. Why is this? I made all my monthly payments, attended my 2 meetings and was under the impression that after I was discharged I would no longer owe monies to my trustee. I spoke to the governement directly and they explained to me that there is interest showing on my account and that until they hear from trustee all monies will continue to be directed to them. This is very frustrating as my trustee will not return my calls and I was never explained any of this and thought all my obligations were completed upon receiving my discharge in September. Can you pls let me know if how this is being handled is the proper procedure and what I should do.

In normal circumstances it is only taxes for the year that the bankruptcy was filed, not subsequent years. Now it is possible that you signed something contrary to that, but it is difficult to determine without examining all the paperwork associated with your file. If you have further questions you would be best to direct them to your local Superintendent of Bankruptcy representative.
