Tax Documents    Modified 01/25/2006

 

OVERVIEW

 

Debtor’s tax documents must be filed with the court if the U.S. Trustee, the case trustee, or any other party in interest has previously obtained an order granting access to the debtor’s tax documents.  The tax documents once filed with the court will not be accessible electronically to anyone other than court staff.  Only those parties who have previously obtained court approval will be provided a copy of the tax documentation by the Clerk’s Office.  These documents should be properly redacted pursuant to the Judicial Conference Privacy Policy.
