Miscellaneous Bankruptcy Fees Increasing as of November 1, 2011

Miscellaneous Fees to Increase November 1, 2011
Effective November 1, certain miscellaneous fees for the bankruptcy court will increase. The newly
approved court fee schedule, the first inflationary increase in eight years, is expected to result in an
estimated $10.5 million in additional fee revenue for fiscal year 2012. Fees in appeals, district, and
bankruptcy courts are affected. The income the Judiciary receives through miscellaneous fees allows it
to reduce its annual appropriations request to Congress.
