Recent Supreme Court decision, Ransom v FIA Card Services, reminds consumer debtors and their attorneys to watch how they calculate their deductions for the “means test”!  A debtor in bankruptcy who owns a vehicle and does not have a loan or lease payments may not deduct the expense of having that vehicle for purposes of calculating eligibility for a chapter 7 bankruptcy or for determining a debtor’s payment obligations in a chapter 13 plan.
