Q: Can a "payroll register" be used in place of pay stub when filling bankruptcy? My employer doesn't have pay stubs.
It looks like all the information is the same except my address is not in the payroll register. Social is and employee ID, taxes ytd etc.
A: If that is all you have, yes.
A: The Bankruptcy Code only requires proof of income so depending on the location you are in, a payroll register which reflects your gross and net pay plus all deductions and information (i.e. pay date, pay period) should be sufficient proof of income. Be careful as this answer may be different depending on the area in which your case is filed.
