Is the money from sale of business income for chapter 7?

Los Angeles, CA |

I sold my landscaping business. Most of the money was for a truck and tools but some was my client list. Do I include this money for the means test or as income under schedule I?

  1. Income on the Means Test is averaged for the previous 6 months. If the sale of your business was more than 6 months ago, it is not included in the Means Test. It would be disclosed in the Statement of Financial Affairs as a transferred asset within the past 12 months.
