Trustee’s Request for 2016 Tax Returns
During the first week of February, letters requesting receipt of the 2016 Tax Return were mailed to the address of record for active cases filed after 2012. Once you file your 2016 returns, please send a copy of the first two pages of your 2015 Federal Tax Form 1040 and Schedule C, if you have business income, to the respective email, fax or postal address listed in the letter.
• DO NOT send your tax refund to the Trustee unless formerly requested by our office.
• Do not spend any of your refund over $2,000 unless you receive a letter from the Trustee permitting you to do so. The Trustee may request all or part of the excess above $2,000 to be paid to your creditors.
