Re: tax 1099c cancellation of debt
Being taxed on the money and reporting the information on your credit report are two different things. One does not affect the other. What year is the 1099 dated. I assume you never reported the income. You may fit within a couple of exception that would not require you to be taxed on the income. Your situation would have to be reviewed to determine this.
This does not constitute legal advice, and I am not your lawyer unless, and until, I am formally retained.
