7. Period within which debt must be repaid (months)

(Item 1/Item 4 x 1.35) __________


If Item 6 is >/= to Item 4, then all accrued charges are compromised; skip Item 8 through 10, and go to Item 11 to determine the amount of principal to be compromised. Otherwise, continue with Item 8.

If Item 8b is </= to Item 7, no principal need be compromised. Skip to Item 12.

If Item 8b is > Item 7, the amount of the principal must be compromised. Continue to the next item.
