A: Probably not if you filed your bankruptcy in 2018. But, it is best to talk to your bankruptcy attorney in order to make sure your interests are protected.

A: Not likely if you filed in 2018. All of 2019 is post petition. But they probably reopened 2018 bc part of that money earned profilings belongs to the Estate.

A: It depends on when you filed the case. If you filed in 2019 the bankruptcy estate would include a portion of your 2019 refund. If these refunds were listed on your schedules as assets and the Trustee abandoned them, by closing the case, there might be an argument that they do not have to be turned over at all.
