Bankruptcy was not necessary
November 8th, 2011 by Questions
I went bankrupt on the advise of my trustee as I was assessed by CRA to owe $80K in taxes (amounts were set by CRA as I hadn’t filed my taxes in years). My trustee was supposed to file my back taxes but it wasn’t done and he lost my paperwork for 1.5 years during my bankruptcy. When I finally found out, had someone else do my taxes and now instead of owing $80k to CRA, THEY are the one that should have paid me back around $10K as a result of the reassessment. My bankruptcy had told me not to pay my mortgage as CRA had a lien on my house, and as a result I was foreclose on my house as well. Are there any recourses in this type of situation from Trustee mismanagement?
