Change of Collection of Percentage Fee Regarding Chapter 13 Trustees

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

The United States Trustee Program announces that a significant change in policy will take effect on October 1, 2014, when standing trustees will begin to collect percentage fees upon receipt of payment rather than at the time of disbursement. The current practice has been for the trustees to earn the percentage fee upon receipt of payment but collect it upon disbursement.
