    Some income taxes may be dischargeable in your bankruptcy. Filing bankruptcy will not affect your next income tax return or the amount of refund/deficit. However, you may need to file an IRS form 982.

    A tricky situation... I suggest considering a letter to the bankruptcy Trustee advising that if an amended return is filed an additional refund of $X,xxx will be likely, before the costs of amending, and inquiring if the bankruptcy Trustee wants to reopen the bankruptcy estate.

    If you did not reaffirm, only the lien remained upon which the Lender has the right to foreclose. It is common for the lien to be calculated on the basis of the loan (with interest), even if that loan was discharged in the bankruptcy.

    Attorney Corson's answer seems to preclude the possibility that your obligation was discharged in your bankruptcy. A CA bankruptcy attorney needs to weigh in on this issue.
