Pending Changes in National Bankruptcy Forms

March 8, 2019

Automatic adjustments will be made on April 1, 2019, to dollar amounts stated in various provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, one provision in Title 28, seven Official Bankruptcy Forms, and two Director’s Forms.  The adjustments will apply to cases filed on or after April 1, 2019.

11 U.S.C. § 104(a) provides that the Judicial Conference make the adjustments, which are calculated at three-year intervals on the basis of the change in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers for the most recent three-year period ending immediately before the year in which the adjustment is made and rounded to the nearest $25.  The Conference has delegated that authority to the Administrative Office.  The revised dollar amounts were published on February 12, 2019 in volume 84, number 29, of the Federal Register at pages 3,488-89.  The Official Forms and Director’s Forms impacted include:

  • Official Form 106C, The Property You Claim as Exempt
  • Official Form 107, Your Statement of Financial Affairs for Individuals Filing for Bankruptcy
  • Official Form 122A-2, Chapter 7 Means Test Calculation

  • Director’s Form 2000, Required Lists, Schedules, Statements, and Fees
