Bankruptcy Audits Suspended

According to a recent article on the Bankruptcy Law Network by Kansas bankruptcy attorney Jill Michaux, the random and targeted audits of bankruptcy cases by the office of the U.S. Trustee have been suspended. The reason? Congress didn’t appropriate any money!

According to the U.S. Trustee website:

The FY 2008 Consolidated Appropriations Act, Public Law 110-161, provided no funding for debtor audits. As a result, the USTP has suspended its designation of cases subject to audit and has notified the independent accounting firms performing the audits. The Program is pursuing alternative sources of funding to permit it to resume the designation of cases subject to audit and, if successful, intends to reinstate the audits.
