It is best to inform the trustee of the refund and let him decide if he wants it turned in. Failure to do so, could be see as a violation of the plan commitment and prevent or delay a discharge.

Well, the worst they can do is tell you that you are committing a fraud upon the court and deny your discharge. You have come so far, why risk it.
