(b) In a case under chapter 12 or 13 [11 USCS §§ 1201 et seq. or 1301 et seq.] of this title, the court may not allow compensation for services or reimbursement of expenses of the United States trustee or of a standing trustee appointed under section 586(b) of title 28, but may allow reasonable compensation under section 330 of this title [11 USCS § 330] of a trustee appointed under section 1202(a) or 1302(a) of this title [11 USCS § 1202(a) or 1302(a)] for the trustee's services, payable after the trustee renders such services, not to exceed five percent upon all payments under the plan.
