I received a letter from my trustee that I must appear in court for the following reasons, motion to dismiss charter 13 case or modify plan due to not receiving my 2017 tax return.
Then I received a letter from the trustee saying that trustee withdraws motion to dismiss case. Or modify plan.
It likely means that whatever issue the trustee had had been resolved and you will not need to appear but you should ask your attorney.

While in a chapter 13 in the northern district of georgia, you must send the trustee your tax return each year, and may have to send in a portion of your refund as well. The trustees also look over your income on the return to see if you are making more money that you were when you filed your case, then file a motion to modify your plan (increasing your payment) if you are making more income. If they don't get a return, the file a motion to dismiss, but will withdraw it if they end up getting it before the hearing. Apparently, they did end up getting the return and, after looking at your income, decided not to modify your plan because your income was unchanged.
