Tax Refunds to Attorney Fees then Bankruptcy Trustee

TAX REFUND ASSIGNMENTS AND CHAPTER 7
In re: Sydmark, Case No. 06-41218
In re: Black-Watkins, Case No. 05-42439
June, 2008, Judge Karlin

Lamie v. US and Redmond v. Lentz, Hodes and Wagers redux. Assignment of a tax refund does not divest the estate of an interest in them, even though UCC1 was filed. In a Chapter 7 case, refunds, after subtraction of a flat fee, must be turned over to Trustee.
