Subject: No 1099C received but charge off shows on credit report
Posted on Fri Mar 05, 2010 5:02 am  

Stopped paying credit cards over a year ago. Collection Agency calls have subsided in the last few months. I have sent validation letters and of course no reply. I noticed "Charge-offs" on my credit report but have not seen a 1099c. Does this mean the credit card company is not through with me since it is still within the SOL for my state? What is the rule for reporting charge-off amounts if I have not received a 1099c? It is one thing to ruin my credit, and quite another to mess with the IRS.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Pops,

After you received the 1099c, you must have paid the income tax on the forgiven debt. Thus, the collection agency won't be able to come after you for the unpaid balance. However, the unpaid debt will continue to get reflected on your credit report for 7 years. It will fall off, only after 7 years. As far as I understand, you can do nothing about this.

Hope this helps.

It is my understanding that just because they charge it off, does not mean they can't come after you.

The charge off - or written off - means that they took a tax break on the debt you owed. Should they later accomplish collecting the debt from you then they would report back to the IRS the income and pay the taxes on it.

If you do receive a 1099-C and pay it, then keep a copy of that document and forward copy to any collection agencies later contacting you to try to collect on the debt.

Sorry to hear that, I think it may be possible that you check out Bankruptcy options.

What state are you from, I have further information on bankruptcy for you I can post back.

1. How to obtain all debt information to prepare

2. What state laws apply to your bankruptcy.

Let me know and I will get back to you. Thanks

I recently receieved a 1099-c for cancellation of debt on a credit card. I know I have to claim this amount on this years taxes as earned income. My question is once I do this can they still come after me for the amount of the debt cancellation? My statue of limitations is coming up in July of this year (2011), does this have anything to do with this 1099-c?

My gratitude goes out to the entire team of Hack West Professional Credit Repair. Someone left information ((424) 307 2638, HACKWEST@WRITEME.COM) under a comment section on helping to repair credit. I was interested in knowing more and if the hacking team still does this. I had poor credit, an old bankruptcy and problems with getting approved for an apartment due to 2 broken leases from the past which I explained to HACK WEST when I made contact with them. They cleaned my credit records and they boosted my credit score within just few days of contacting them without charging much. They also referred me to their website. Thanks to you all for this great gesture.
