AVOIDING 1099C TAXABLE INCOME THROUGH BANKRUPTCY

1099c income occurs when there is a cancellation of debt. For example, if you owe a creditor $10,000.00 and they agree to settle for $6,000.00, forgiving the $4,000.00, the sum of $4,000.00 can count as income to you. However, if instead the entire debt is eliminated through a bankruptcy, there is no income to you and no tax consequence since the debt is discharged rather than forgiven or cancelled. A tax can also result from forgiveness of debt with a foreclosure. Again, filing a bankruptcy before the completion of the foreclosure can help avoid a tax liability.
