1) on schedule C, the debtors put the figure on "value of claimed exemption" the figures from deducting the current value of residence minus amount of lien, which came out to be $$52,966, is it correct to put this value in this section of schedule C?
2)Debtors' equity is $52,966, and system 2 only allows up to $22,075(703.140.(b)(1), so debtors opted to use system 1.
Thank you for your response.
1 & 2) When debtors file a Bankrutpcy, they cannot hope or expect to keep everything. Accordingly, when using System 1, there is no exemption for bank accounts and cars worth more than the allowable exemption (currently $2725 as of June 2011).
3) Yes - the amount of equity (market value minus liens) goes on Schedule C.
