Updated Confirmation Requirements – TAX RETURNS

For all cases FILED after 1/1/14, we will require the verification of the filing of 2013 Income Tax Returns. Consistent with the policy previously established, we will not hold up confirmation but include language in the Confirmation Order that the Debtor(s) will provide a copy of the filed 2013 Income Tax Returns prior to 5/31/2014. The required language to be included as an additional provision in the Order is, “…the debtor(s) shall submit to the Chapter 13 Trustee a copy of the filed Federal Income Tax returns required pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Section 1325(a)(9) and 1308(a)”.
