He deducts allowable expenses from his income and comes up with $200 a month extra. Because his excess income comes to $12,000 when projected over the next five years ($200 x 60 months), Jonas fails the means test. If Jonas had only $125 a month extra ($7,500 over a five-year period), he would have to figure out whether this amount would pay 25% of his unsecured, nonpriority debt in that five-year period. For instance, if Jonas owed $36,000 in credit card debt, he would be barred from Chapter 7 if he could pay $9,000 (25% of the debt) over a five-year period.
