The Judicial Conference of the United States approved a $25 fee for the transfer of a claim in a bankruptcy case that becomes effective May 1, 2013. This fee appears as item 20 on the bankruptcy court miscellaneous fee schedule and will be assessed for each claim transfer. (See 28 U.S.C. §1930.)
The Internet Payments functionality in CM/ECF has been modified to allow for electronic collection of the new transfer of claims filing fee. Filers whose accounts are enabled for internet payments will be able to pay the fee using www.pay.gov. This modification includes claims upload.
In order to submit the new filing fee electronically, the submitting party will be required to use a credit card. Therefore, all ECF filers are encouraged to review their internal controls for submitting electronic payments in preparation for the new fee assessment.
