Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'X a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
Which address has your father used on his income tax returns for the past 2 years?
It's my brother - he hasn't filed recently
In which state does he vote?
Also, which address is on his drivers license?
NY - but the last time he voted was 12 yrs. ago.
Driver's license is from Pa.
Also, the adress listed is the same as the property we're asking about.
Thank you for your responses. If he considers PA to be his main residence (it is okay that he also lives in and rents an apartment in another state), he will be able to apply the homestead exemption to his PA home.
This even though he's filing in the Southern District of New York
Yes - because he has to file in the district where he has lived for the most amount of time during tne 180 days before filing.
If he lived in NYC for at least 91 days out of the 10 days before filing, he has to file in NYC.
...out of the 180 days...
OK. We thank you very much.
