    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Discuss with your lawyer as your post - just one long sentence - does not make much sense. There is certainly no way to guess what assets you have or had, what the Trustee has an interest in, or anything else about your case beyond a tax refund will be distributed.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . It is not clear what you're asking. You mention final report in the first line and a couple of months before bankruptcy in the last line - where are you in the process? In a Chapter 13 tax refunds are taken by the trustee and distributed to creditors, above the pooled or percentage amount that the confirmed plan states that you will pay. You might be able to keep all or a portion of your tax refund by filing a Motion to Retain Funds. You should discuss with your attorney if such a motion is appropriate in your case.
