Over Payment of Fees

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Any over payment of fees collected by the Court in excess of $25.00 or less will not be refunded by the Court. The Court will provide copies for the difference if requested. If a payment is made by check or money order the Court will notify the party by returned U.S. Mail that the funds are over the amount due.

Therefore:

1)  Fees collected by the Court should be in the correct amount due.

2)  The Bankruptcy Court is not authorized to maintain funds to make change.

3)  Payments received by the Court that exceed the amount dure by more than $25.00 will not be accepted as payment and will be returned in full to the payor.

     B)  If an overpayment is made by ACH (Automatic Clearing House - via CM/ECF), a motion must be filed with the Court and an Order signed by the Judge(s) granting the refund. All ACH refund(s) will be processed and disbursed by check.

     C)  If an overpayment is made by Credit Card a motion must be filed with the Court and an Order signed by the Judge(s) granting the refund. All Credit Card refund(s) will be returned to the Credit Card.

4)  Payments received by the Court that exceed the amount due by $25.00 or less will be accepted.

     A)  The excess amount will be retained by the Court and deposited in a separate Treasury account.

     B)  If an overpayment as described above is made in cash, which is only accepted at the Intake counter, the Court will inform the payor that the Court does not make change and any exess amount will be forfeited to the Court. The Courtwill not maintain a running accountfor any payor.
