Tax Rebate/GST Rebate

My son is in bankruptcy. He has not earned any money for 3 months. He has paid his monthly fee. His executor has taken his GST rebate and is about to take his Federal/Provincial rebate as well. Is this legal. How can he service. The rebate money was to go to paying his monthly fee.
Help, please

I am sorry, but GST rebates and tax refunds for the year a person files for bankruptcy (and all prior years) are automaticaly sent to a trustee. This should have been explained to your son before he filed. Your son’s trustee hasn’t done anything improper/illegal – this is part of the process.
