In regards XXXXX XXXXX payments made by your Bankruptcy trustee will be treated as if you made them yourself, you still have a right to claim those tax deductions you would normally take if you weren’t in bankruptcy.

For example, if you’re paying mortgage interest in Chapter 13 bankruptcy and/or defaulted mortgage payments, those payments may be deductible from your taxes. If you’re paying federal or state taxes, spousal support or business debts/expenses through the Chapter 13 bankruptcy this may also be deductible from your taxes.
