Rule 2084-5

Tax Returns

Unless the court grants a motion for an extension of time, if a debtor fails to comply with Bankruptcy Code § 521(e) or (f), or § 1308(a), the case trustee may upload a dismissal order and the court may summarily dismiss the case, or the case trustee may file a motion to dismiss.  If the debtor elects to provide a transcript in lieu of a return, the debtor shall provide a “Tax Return Transcript” that includes a line item summary with substantially similar information as provided on the tax return.  A simple account transcript that summarizes the financial status of the account, date of filing, assessments, and so forth, is not substantially similar to a tax return and fails to meet the requirements of Bankruptcy Code § 521(e) or (f).
