bankruptcy and tax refunds
April 1st, 2009 by Questions
I filed bankruptcy in January 2008. My return for 2007 (refund) went to my bankruptcy estate, as well – they filed a pre-bankruptcy return for Jan. 1 – 6, 2008.
They told me that I personally can file for my Jan. 7 – Dec. 31, 2008 return and keep any refunds if applicable.
My absolute discharge just went through in February 2009. My accountant is trying to e-file the remainder of my 2008 income tax file – and cannot.
Does this remainder of 2008 need to be paper filed?
Approx. how long does it usually take CRA to remove the Trustee from a person`s file – so that GST and any refunds, etc… come directly to me again?
Does the Trustee automatically file the discharge with CRA and the other creditors listed on the bankruptcy?
