Information for Submitting Tax Returns

Bankruptcy laws require that all Chapter 13 debtors submit their tax returns each year they are in bankruptcy. In addition, tax refunds are also required to be sent to the Trustee. In order to determine how much of your refund needs to be submitted to the Trustee, please either consult your attorney or refer to your copy of the Order Confirming Chapter 13 Plan.
