Providing Tax Returns to Trustees

11 U.S.C §521(e)(2) requires debtors to provide to the trustee a Federal Tax Return.

1. The tax return (or transcript) should be for the most recent tax year ending immediately prior to the commencement of the case.

2. Federal Tax Return must be submitted not later than 7 days before the date first set for the §341 meeting.

3. Failure to comply with this requirement requires dismissal of the case, unless the debtor demonstrates that the failure to comply is due to circumstances beyond the debtor's control.

4. Submit in PDF format, via email to the trustee appointed in the debtor(s) case (trustees listed below). Please DO NOT send tax returns to trustees in paper format.

5. Subject line of e-mail should reflect “Tax Return,” 341 date (example 1/1/06) and
