"Form 1099-C - Cancellation of Debt Income" - This course is approved by NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy). Attendees of Live Webinar are eligible for 2.5 CPE credit up on full completion of the course.

Why Should You Attend:

When creditors write off a debt, they are required by law to issue the taxpayer/debtor a Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt. According to Internal Revenue Code section 61, income is taxable from whatever source it is derived. This includes the discharge of debt. It is unfortunate that many taxpayers and their representatives are unacquainted with IRC section 108 which excludes many of these discharges or cancellations of debt from taxable income. If their discharges or cancellations of debt are properly handled when their returns are filed (or even later), taxpayers can avoid paying tax at a time when they are least able to afford making such payments.

This is a complex area of the tax law, and many tax preparers are unaware of the IRS relief provisions that are available. Often it is not too late to ask the IRS for Abatement or refund even if the normal statute of limitations has expired. This course will offer attendees an overview of code section 108 and discuss write-offs, foreclosures, short sales, and other discharges of debt.
