Who is responsible to payback CCTB.. who should file bankruptcy

April 17th, 2012 by Questions

I was not reporting my income for last 10 years and we were getting CCTB and other benefits. My wife was getting those benefits because she had almost zero income.
Now I am filing VDP. TAX I owe is 20K whereas CCTB which we (actually my wife) received is 75K.
So will I have to pay back CCTB or my wife?

Today I meet trustee and she said your wife will have to pay what she received, not you.
I am confuse.. please help

You’ve answered you own question – if your wife was the receipient of the money then your wife is the one responsible to pay it back.
