Question from line 16: Taxes

Where to enter this in NextChapter: Income > Employment Income > Edit or Add New Income > Pay Advice > Tax Deductions AND/OR Expenses > Taxes / Insurance > Tax Payments

NextChapter uses the following to calculate the taxes used on line 16.

  • Taxes from the debtor's pay advice that is being used on Schedule I.

  • Taxes entered in the Expense section of the application (also entered into Schedule J).

  • If there is an expected tax refund entered in the Personal Property section (also listed on Schedule A/B), NextChapter will divide the expected refund by 12 to determine the monthly amount and subtract that amount from the total monthly taxed listed on Line 16 of the Means Test Calculation form.

You can override the amount being used on Line 16 in the Means Test Questions section of the application here:

When you select to override the expenses from Schedule I, a new screen will appear allowing you to over the tax expense amount.
