In re:  Dennis L and Minnie L Tucker

Summary:  The Trustee objected to the secured proof of claim of the Internal Revenue Service on the basis that the documentation accompanying the IRS claim was insufficient to establish that the IRS had a valid, perfected lien.  While the IRS attached a facsimile copy of the Notice of Federal Tax Lien to its claim, it did not include a copy of the actual recorded lien.  The Trustee argued that the claim was, therefore, insufficient under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 3001(d).  The Trustee’s objection was overruled.

In re: Michael D and Kristy M Austin

Summary: Debtors' plan proposed to pay their mortgage in its entirety over the life of the plan (60 months) at an interest rate lower than the contract rate. The mortgage was not scheduled to mature until roughly two years after plan completion. The mortgagee creditor also received wage assignments from debtors at the note's execution but which had expired prior to filing the petition. Debtors argued that creditor's claim was secured by more than a security interest in their principal residence, allowing for modification of the secured claim. Held: the point in time in which the court should judge a creditor's security interest is the date of filing the petition, not the date of the transaction. Creditor's objection to confirmation sustained.
