Usually receipts are not required to be shown for expenses. If the Chapter 7 Trustee questions an expense, he or she has authority to request that you produce them. In my experience this is not a random request, but done when the Trustee suspects an expense is too high. A typical time frame would be 6 months to a one year of receipts for any questionable expense. The request is usually by letter asking you to bring them to the Meeting of Creditors.
