Beginning April 1, 2017, the IRS will enforce regulations on interest bearing moneys held by courts, including funds held as disputed ownership funds in interpleader cases.

These motions are required to be used when filing any motion involving interpleader or other deposit requests:

Interpleaders Only (new events)

Motion > Interpleader Deposit (28 U.S.C. Section 1335)

Motion > Interpleader Disbursement (28 U.S.C. Section 1335)
