State/Country relating to Question: Texas
MY CHAPER 13 PLAIN WAS PAID IN FULL OWN JAN. 17 2010. HAVE NOT RECIVED A DISCHARGE AS OF YET. WHEN I LOOK AT MY CASE OWN LINE IT SAYS PENDING PAID OUT.
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.
