The means test has two parts: Current Monthly Income which compares the prospective debtor's income to the Census Bureau's definition of poverty. In this test, there are no offsets for expenses and an employer reimbursement for gas expenses would be counted as income. Disposable Monthly Income, This takes the CMI and deducts certain expenses. The actual gas expenses of the prospective debtor is deducted here as a necessary expense. If a debtor passes the CMI test, the debtor is below median and qualifies for Chapter 7. If the debtor fails the CMI test, then the debtor calculates the DMI test and will qualify as a Chapter 7 debtor if the DMI test is passed.
