Have you looked at the new 1099-C "Cancellation of Debt" reporting forms? Do you understand the changes? Do you know how to provide the additional information now required?
With the end of the year fast approaching, now is a great time to take a look at your 1099-C and 1099-A reporting policies and procedures—especially because actions you take now can affect what you must report in January!
Do you know what the difference is between a 1099-C and a 1099-A, and the circumstances that should trigger filing of one or the other?
Do you know what your financial institution's liability is if you report when you shouldn't, fail to report when you should, or improperly complete the forms?
During this program, attorney Eric North talks with participants about the rules and court decisions relating to the reporting of "cancelled" debt, including—
- Exactly when a debt should be reported on form 1099-C or 1099-A, and why you should not report too soon.
- How to complete the forms—including the new field.
- Why filing a 1099-C properly should not affect your right to collect the reported debt, but why filing it improperly might.
- What happens if you report for the wrong year.
- Whether and how to report losses from foreclosures, short sales, and voluntary surrenders of property.
- What you should do if a debtor pays a debt after a 1099-C has been filed.
- The effect of sale or assignment of a debt on reporting requirements.
- Whether you can use 1099-C or 1099-A reporting as a collection tool.
- When debts discharged in bankruptcy should and should not be reported.
- How courts interpret your 1099-C reporting obligations.
- Common mistakes financial institutions make with respect to 1099-C and 1099-A reporting, and how to avoid them.
