the irs has a copy of my bankruptcy. The trustee states if I don't file an additional form they will still intercept my federal and state taxes.
Then you have to file a "522(f) motion" with the Bankrutpcy court. This is a motion that is necessary to remove a lien once it is placed on any assets - including income tax refunds. You should be able to get the necessary forms and instructions for this from the clerk at the Bankrutpctcy court.
