D. All funds held by the bankruptcy estate must be deposited into an account with a financial institution that agrees to comply with the reporting and collateralization requirements of the United States Trustee.

8. QUARTERLY FEES A. Debtors-in-possession and trustees in Chapter 11 cases are required to pay a quarterly fee pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Section 1930(a)(6). Quarterly fees must be paid for every calendar quarter, commencing with the filing of Chapter 11 until the date of entry of an order dismissing the case, converting the case to Chapter 7, or issuing a final decree. If a case is pending as a Chapter 11 without a confirmed plan for even one day during a quarter, payment of the fee for that quarter is required. The amount of the quarterly fee depends upon the dollar amount of the debtor's disbursements during each calendar quarter. A minimum fee of $325 is due each quarter even if no

disbursements are made during that quarter. The fee amounts are as follows:

–  –  –

B. Pursuant to Section 1129(a)(12) of the Bankruptcy Code, a plan of reorganization must provide for payment of all unpaid quarterly fees prior to the entry of a final decree or upon the entry of an order dismissing or converting the case, or it cannot be confirmed.

Box 530202, Atlanta, GA 30353The debtor's account number, which can be obtained from the statement, or by contacting the U.S. Trustee's Office, should be written on the face of the check.

If you do not receive the proper form or a bill from the Executive Office of the United States Trustee, contact the United States Trustee's office in Chattanooga or Knoxville, Tennessee. Direct all correspondence and questions regarding your account to the office of the U.S. Trustee, Chattanooga or Knoxville, Tennessee.

–  –  –

E. If a check is returned for insufficient funds, all future quarterly payments must be made by cashier's check, certified funds, or money order.

F. If the case is converted to a proceeding under Chapter 7, 12, or 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, quarterly fees will nevertheless be required for the period the case was pending as a Chapter 11 proceeding through the date the order of conversion is entered. After conversion, the debtor will be required to file a schedule of unpaid obligations incurred after the commencement of the Chapter 11 case, pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 1019(5) and Section 348(d) of the Bankruptcy Code. Accrued U.S. Trustee quarterly fees which are considered administrative expenses under Section 507(a)(1) should be included on the schedule of unpaid debts..

G. If the case is dismissed, quarterly fees to the U.S. Trustee will nevertheless be required for the period the case was pending as a Chapter 11 proceeding through the date the dismissal order is entered. The U.S. Trustee will oppose dismissal unless the dismissal order includes provision for payment of unpaid quarterly fees

with language substantially similar to that set forth below:

H. FAILURE TO PAY THE QUARTERLY FEE IS CAUSE FOR CONVERSION

OR DISMISSAL OF YOUR CHAPTER 11 CASE UNDER SECTION

1112(b)(4)(K) OF THE BANKRUPTCY CODE. FILING A FALSE REPORT

MAY SUBJECT YOU TO CIVIL LIABILITY UNDER 31 U.S.C. SECTION

3729(A)(7) AND TO CRIMINAL PENALTIES UNDER 18 U.S.C. SECTION 1001 AND 18 U.S.C. SECTION 1621.

–  –  –

Please be advised that, pursuant to the Debt Collection Improvements Act of 1996, Public Law 104-134, Title III, § 31001(i)(3)(A), 110 Stat. 1321-365, codified at 31 U.S.C. § 3701, the United States Trustee intends to use the debtor’s Taxpayer Identifying Number (“TIN”) as reported by the debtor or debtor’s counsel in connection with the chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings for the purpose of collecting and reporting on any delinquent debt, including chapter 11 quarterly fees, that are owed to the United States Trustee.

The United States Trustee will provide the debtor’s TIN to the Department of Treasury for its use in attempting to collect overdue debts. Treasury may take the following steps: (1) submit the debt to the Internal Revenue Service Offset Program so that the amount owed may be deducted from any payment made by the federal government to the debtor, including but not limited to tax refunds; (2) report the delinquency to credit reporting agencies, (3) send collection notices to the debtor, (4) engage private collection agencies to collect the debt, and (5) engage the United States Attorney’s office to sue for collection. Collection costs will be added to the total amount of the debt.

9. NOTICE REQUIREMENTS ON U.S. TRUSTEE

FRBP 9034(k) requires the debtor to serve the U. S. Trustee with a copy of certain pleadings filed by the debtor. However, whenever any pleading or order is filed in a Chapter 11 case (or any other Chapter), the U. S. Trustee automatically receives a copy through the Court’s Electronic Case Filing system. Therefore there is no need for debtors or their counsel to send copies of any pleadings or orders to the U. S. Trustee, either by mail or email.

Should the debtor need to send something other than a pleading, this can be done by email.

THE UNITED STATES TRUSTEE MAY MODIFY, OR AMEND THESE GUIDELINES AND

REQUIREMENTS FROM TIME TO TIME, AND AS IS APPROPRIATE IN AN
