Late last year the Internal Revenue Service made a significant change to 1099-C reporting rules! The change will make reporting much, much easier this year, but also a little more risky!

On the other hand, a growing number of lawsuits have been filed against financial institutions because of the way they communicate their 1099-C related practices and because of the way they report debts after 1099-C filing.

Meanwhile, courts continue to weigh in on whether you may continue to collect a debt after a 1099-C or 1099-A has been filed--and when you can be successfully sued for even trying!

Be sure you understand the revised rules before filing your 1099-C and 1099-A reports next year!

During this webinar, participants will learn:

  • Exactly when you should (and when you shouldn't) file a 1099-C or a 1099-A—and why it is so important not to file too late or too soon!
  • How to complete the forms—including the code field.
  • Why properly filing a 1099-C should not affect your right to collect the reported debt, but why filing it improperly might.

If you have already prepared your 1099-C and 1099-A reporting list for 2017, you will probably want to make changes to it because of the new IRS rules!
