Do I Have to Pay Tax on a RRSP During a Bankruptcy?

Am I Responsible for Paying Tax on a RRSP that My Trustee Cashes in During a Bankruptcy?

No. The bankruptcy estate is responsible to pay any tax on that RRSP. But you should be aware that in general you will retain ownership of your RRSP – except for any contributions made within the last 12 months prior to bankruptcy

Thank you for your consideration and help.

May I take this moment to say that I was very impressed and I am very grateful for the professionalism in your organization. Every person I spoke with from Ivanna up until you were professional, organized, respectful, knowledgeable. Bankruptcy is difficult. I felt shame when I contacted A Farber. Quickly, I was able to move forward through your organized steps.

I hope you never have to experience the hard time that fell on me. Know that your work mattered to me who needed help.
