Legal Advice


QI filled of Chapter 7 without an lawyer, but need some advice?

In Aug 2011 I had to fill for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Oregon. During the hearing of creditors I was asked if my tax refund was normally high. I stated I normally get between $3000-$4000 back and would use my refund to pay off any outstanding debt I may have. He requested that I would need to send in a copy of my 2011 tax returns. I received a letter this week requesting a copy of my tax return and to also send in my tax refunds. I had my taxes done this week and again the refund was higher than normal. In the past I have used my refund to pay off any outstanding debt but I had already filled bankruptcy and didn't know I would have to send in my tax refund. I have since lost my job and have already budgeted the refund into my living expenses. What are my options now? Do I have to send the refund in? I've been reading that the Earned Income Credit is excluded from this. Can I withhold that amount and send in the balance? I've also been reading about using the "Wild Card" to be able to keep the whole refund. Is it to late to use this option? If I don't send in the tax refund, I understand my case will be dismissed but will that prevent me from filling at a later time when I'm able to afford a lawyer?
