Posted on Thursday, December 11th, 2014 at 4:27 pm
Below are some thing to keep in mind this holiday Season if a bankruptcy is a possibility before the new year…
- Gifts – Christmas gifts that are worth hundreds of dollars must be listed in your bankruptcy.
- Expensive Items Purchased – Any items purchased to be kept in house or given away as a gift to someone else has to be reported. Luxury items being purchased will raise red flags that could prevent you from discharging your debt. A luxury item is defined as something costing more the $650.
- Tax Refunds – Tax refunds are considered an asset and must be reported even if you do not know the exact amount you will be receiving.
- Home Equity – If you have a lot of equity in your home, it can limit the amount of exemption you can put towards your assets. Be very careful.
