IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING UST DEBTOR AUDITS

Jacque Rambo  | Published on 3/25/2020
As authorized in section 603(a) of Public Law 109-8, the USTP established procedures for independent audit firms to audit petitions, schedules, and other information in consumer bankruptcy cases. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 586(f), the USTP contracted with independent accounting firms to perform audits in cases designated by the USTP.

Due to ongoing public health concerns associated with COVID-19, effective immediately, the USTP is suspending its designation of new individual chapter 7 and chapter 13 cases subject to audit for an indefinite period.
