A: The Trustee is required to make the report. It is merely an Accounting of what monies you paid in, what amounts the Trustee paid out, the Trustees fees and the balance if any remaining and where it went. The Trustee is showing you and the Court where the money went. You don't need to fo anything or make any response.

A: I agree with Mr. Nolan's answer, to a point, which is-

Usually, when a case is dismissed, the Ch. 13 trustee holds some amount of a debtor's plan payments that have not been distributed, and those funds are to be refunded to the debtor. You will want to examine the trustee's final report, and request your refund if there are any undistributed funds.
