DISCLAIMER: The Trustee Filing System (TFS) has been designed to provide a safe and efficient process for providing financial information and tax returns to the Trustee pursuant to F.R.B.P. 1007(b)(1)(E) and 4002(a)(2) and (3). While the Trustee has taken the necessary steps to safeguard the confidentiality of the documents submitted to the Office of the Standing Trustee, it is the Debtor(s)' attorney's responsibility to verify that all but the last four digits of debtor(s)'s social security numbers and the social security numbers and other personally identifiable information with regard to minor children have been permanently redacted. The attorney assumes complete responsibility for the redaction of such numbers and information on documents input into the system. The Trustee shall not be liable to anyone for the failure of the attorney to redact such numbers and information.
