Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney.
You should have the ability to use the money to keep your business in operation. However, you will have to report the income in your monthly operating reports.
Also, yes, you can discuss this issue with your trustee to make sure that you're in compliance with all requirements.
Here's a good link about how chapter 11 plans work: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/new-jersey-inheritance-tax.html
thanks. this came up because i paid the quarterly fees out of that rental property account and it is on the monthly operating report, but he wants me to "gift" the money for my folks to pay it back. Do we have to file some kind of motion to use that money? I'll have him talk to the trustee. I already feel disloyal asking quetions here, but the money is so tight, i really need it. thanks again.
I don't think you need to file a motion for permission to use the money. The money is part of your business income and should be reflected in your monthly operating reports. But, I don't think there is a requirement for another step to take in order to be able to use the money.
I would just clear what you're doing with the trustee and leave it at that/and reflect it in your monthly operating reports.
