    Answered . Yes it can be up to the maximum allowable amount. You should discuss this with your attorney an also discuss the reasons for wanting to continue the lease. It may be in your future economic interest to abandon the lease and surrender the vehicle.

    Good luck.

    Answered . That's not an Illinois question, but a general bankruptcy question..

    Leased vehicles qualify for the ownership deduction on the means test.

    Answered . The deductions on the Means Test are the same in every state. You may take the deduction for the lease of a vehicle as you would be able to do so for making an ownership loan payment. Hope this perspective helps!
