Are Voluntary Retirement Contributions Deductible When Computing Net Disposable Income in Chapter 13?

Well that’s a good question.  But according to Peter Lively, the deductions are allowable in Judge Zuzolo’s courtroom from now on.  Below is the email I received today from Peter.

Judge Zurzolo announced at the confirmation hearing this morning regarding one of my clients that he will now allow voluntary retirement contributions for his cases.  He is no longer following the BAP’s In re Parks opinion.  In all fairness to Nancy Curry, she withdrew her objection prior to the ruling and the case was confirmed, but Judge Zurzolo recalled the case and said he has spent a lot of time reading the brief and considering the issue and wanted to announce his decision.
