Errata: Spouses Cannot Double the Rhode Island Homestead Exemption

The Federal and State Exemption Tables in the following Nolo bankruptcy books incorrectly state that married couples filing a joint bankruptcy in Rhode Island can double the homestead exemption:

  • The New Bankruptcy, 5th edition
  • Chapter 13 Bankrutcy, 11th edition
  • How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, 18th edition

In fact, married couples filing jointly cannot double the homestead exemption in Rhode Island. They can, however, double most other types of exemptions.
