Starting SEPTEMBER 8th of 2021, chapter 12 and 13 341 meetings will be conducted by VIDEO throughout the Western District. Click HERE for instructions
341 meetings are usually the first formal event ever held in a case. The debtor and co-debtor (if applicable) must attend this meeting in person, and should be be prepared to answer questions on the schedules, statements and Chapter 13 Plan they filed. They must bring a social security card (or proof thereof) and government issued photo id (driver's license). Identification and social security number must be verified on the record before your case may proceed. Typically these meetings last 5-15 minutes. If there are no objections or other problems a confirmation recommendation will be made by the Trustee and confimation by the Court will occur shortly thereafter. If there are objections or other problems, a confirmation hearing will be set by the Court for a later date.
At least 10 days prior to the 341 Meeting our office requires the following documents (if applicable) be emailed or faxed to our office: copy of the filed Federal and State tax returns for the current tax year; lien perfection information: recorded mortgages and assignments and vehicle titles; the completed self-employed questionnaire; any other documentation we request to verify information provided in the schedules. 11 USC 1308 requires the debtor to file all required tax returns for tax periods ending within four years of the debtor’s filing date prior to the 341 meeting. The code speaks to tax period (typically Jan-Dec) not IRS due date (typically April 15). For 341 meetings after February 15th of any given year, taxes thru the most recent December are required.
