If I can't afford to pay the settlement offer on a debt, would it be better to request a 1099c from them and pay 20-25 % taxes to the IRS? Also, would the 1099c be filed for the current year or the year of the original debt?

Actually it depends on what you can afford. If paying the taxes will be easier go for it.

The 1099-C is filed for the current year. Your debt is forgiven this year, therefore, it is considered income this year.

Were they offering you a 1099-C? I've not really heard of a creditor just giving up on a debt...it's usually just sold.

For your second question

You will have to file for the year of the original debt.

Income from the discharge of an indebtedness arises in the calendar year in which an obligation is either satisfied at less than face value, or is forgiven.

The IRS actually defines when a debt is deemed as "cancelled" - mainly 1) if settled for less than full balance or 2) if there has been no bona fide collection activity on the account for 3 years (??). You can go to the IRS website, and lookup instructions on 1099C for the actual period.

You really cannot request that a debt be cancelled. As long as the creditor intends to collect on the debt, and as long as they actually do perform collection activities within the IRS time frame, it is not cancelled.

Guest is correct,most 1099c are issued when part of a debt is forgiven.If you are issued one you would owe a tax obligation on it unless you can show the Irs that you meet their definition of insolvency.

It depends on your tax bracket...but as I understand it, you've added 21,500 to your income.

You can try calling the IRS for assistance; look into what constitutes insolvency.

Subject: what if a 1099C was not received?

Must a person list a canceled debt on his/her tax return, if he/she did not receive a 1099C from that canceled debt?

For individuals canceled earnings is included in Form 1040. For business and corporation it is listed in the tax returns.

When will a bank issue the 1099C on a foreclosure? Will they wait until
they sell the house?

As far as I know, 1099 C form is sent only if the difference between the amount outstanding and the amount for which your property has been sold under foreclosure exceeds $600. However, if you can pay off the difference, then you need not fill up the 1099 C form.
The 1099 C form is send only after the property is sold.

I know my vacant land property was foreclosed upon, only because I searched the records online. The bank has never sent me any notice other than their intent to foreclose way back in Feb 2009...nothing since. I expect to receive a 1099c this year for the charge off but what do I do if I don't receive one? I don't know what the amount will be.
