I paid off a bankruptcy with $63,000, more or less, of my retirement

Customer Question

I paid off a bankruptcy with $63,000, more or less, of my retirement money. I owned my home as a result. However, about $25,000 in property taxes were not paid with that amount, even though they were included in the bankruptcy. The firm says they paid them; but in reality I did. Now I'm stuck with a Home Equity loan. How can I get this $ back? I feel like I paid for the taxes twice.
