Do you have to file a 1099 c if you filed bankruptcy?
Yes. The IRS considers any forgiven debt as income, so you must file the 1099 to show the amount of debt that was forgiven.

How to file for bankruptcy online The following paragraph sounds very intimidating to a bankruptcy consumer, but in reality, it is not. The stack of forms to file bankruptcy is about 1/4 inch thick, there are Mandatory Credit Counseling and Debtor Education courses to take, and a Meeting of Cre…ditors that you must attend. To fill out the bankruptcy forms, you can consult a "Bankruptcy Software for Consumers" program. You can find a quality one for under $45 online. Most bankruptcy software companies also post a "Bankruptcy without an Attorney" tutorial on their website, to guide you through the non-paperwork steps of a typical bankruptcy. You can find a detailed tutorial at the following link: http://www.ezbankruptcyforms.com/how-to-file-chapter-7-bankruptcy-without-a-lawyer.html You can get bankruptcy forms for your state online. Also,Consumer Credit Counseling service, in your state, will review your situation and give you a certificate. My understanding is that you must have the certificate to file. And, for anyone filing in Hawaii, the MAXIMUM amount of equity you have in your home, for a couple, is $40,200.00. So, if you owe $120K and your home would sell/list for $150K you have $30K in equity and you can keep your home. All forms are online with the US Bankruptcy court including the fee waiver (for the $299.00 filing fee) as well as the pay-in-installment form. Hope these additional add-ons help and good luck to you! (MORE)

No. It is similar to your taxes, you have the option of filing jointly. However, if you have been married for awhile and have a… lot of joint debt, you should file jointly because your obligation to repay joint debt will survive your husband's bankruptcy.

Answer . \nYes, bankruptcy does not change the legal requirement of the BK filer to file an income tax return.
\n. \n. \n Amending A Tax Return \n. \nYou will have to file an ammended return, you can download the form free from the IRS website, but you have to mail it in because an ammended return has to be in paper form (not e-filed).\n. \n. \n . \n Refile a corrected return. The IRS web site w…ill give you the details, but you simply copy the data from your old form and add in the new information. Then you will have to provide a check for the new amount due. There is a specific way to mark the return so they know it is a corrected return.\n. \n. \n . \n You will need to file an amended return. This is done on a Form 1040X. It is different than the normal 1040 and much shorter. It too is available on most PC programs if you did your return that way. You will probably find the 1040X fairly easy. Actually, you only have to input the things that changed...pretty much just on the identified line - like interest income - as filed, the new amount, the change (up or down) - and the resulting totals. True, if your change is from a new or corrected W-2/1099, that may need to be submitted too.\n. \nIf your receiving any W-2/1099 or such, this late, make sure they are actually for the 2006 year, not 2007! (I've received some 1099B for 2007 already). (MORE)
You need to get the yellow pages and look in, ATTORNEYS, look for one that specializes in bankruptcy.In some states it may require that you have an attorney in order to file bankruptcy. In the state of Oklahoma you are not required to have one. My advice is for you to contact the court house in whic…h you plan to file and ask them if you are required to have an attorney. The best approach is to seek legal advice but you can find most , if not all, of the forms at a local office supply store. A person will also need to gather all of the names of collectors and companies along with the amount owed and addresses before filing. There are fees for filing which are different from state to state and you can also find this out through the court. If you have to ask to start.....you need professional help doing so. Filing is one small step in a very complex process, with lots of ongoing requirements, that need to be handled correctly or risk not only having a bad result, but doing something considered criminal (deceiving the court). Get an attorney...many of your creditors will! (MORE)
What happens if you file bankruptcy differs depending on what chapter of bankruptcy you or your business decides to file under. The most common form of bankruptcy for the individual is Chapter 7. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the banks may liquidate property and assets-except things that are explicitl…y protected. After this, most debts are forgiven-but not all, as certain debts do not qualify. Your credit score will then be severely damaged by the filing, but you will be free to slowly bring it back up as you will not be suffocated by debt. The article below goes into further detail on the process of bankruptcy. (MORE)

You would first want to find an attorney to represent you, then start referring creditors to the attorney. Then file-or if you have a lawyer, he or she will do it-a bankruptcy petition for whichever chapter you have decided on/qualify for.

There is also some software options to assist you in filing your bankruptcy.

You should at least consult with a bankruptcy attorney. Most BK lawyers offer a free initial consultation. Don't hire one unless you feel comfortable. If you wish to file your own, you may be doing it at your own peril. Some BKs are relatively straight forward and you can get through it. Most are… complicated. Whether you use an attorney or not, be sure and consult with a qualified attorney. (MORE)
Individuals or businesses that qualify. There are a number of different qualifications. Most chapters require a certain set monetary amount of debt to file among other things.
ALL debts and ALL assets MUST be included. You cannot pick and chose what is included. Your entire financial obligations and assets are involved. You go BK, not a debt. Each type of obligation or asset are given different priorities (or status) of payment, with assets being used to pay obligatio…ns. Some assets and some debts may be exempt, but they are included and given that status. That basically becomes a court decision. They are included, but NOT dischargeable, like court fines, restitution, child support and some others. . (MORE)
Filing bankruptcy stops all debt-collection actions, whether phone calls, letters or lawsuits. including repossessions, foreclosures and attachments or garnishments. If the case is a c. 7, there is a "341" meeting, where a trustee examines the debtor under oath as to his/her assets and income and ce…rtain kinds of pre-filing activity. If there are no problems, you receive a discharge, which permanently prevents all collection actions on the discharged debts. If it is a c. 13, there has to be a plan, and if the plan is approved and completed, you will get a discharge, as well as getting caught up on all secured debt arrears. (MORE)
Rapid refund and such are done by private companies and are fancy names for very expensive loans. If your paid on a 1099, you were required to make estimated tax payments through the year, and if you overpaid on those, and therefore have a refund coming, I suspect they would give you that loan. But …if that's the case, as the last payment was due 12/15, you should have sent less...not sent a lot and then borrowed money at a huge charge waiting to file a return and get it back. (MORE)

Form 1099-C is Cancellation of Debt. Form 1040X is Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. If your dependent's 1099-C form affects your return, then should file, as promptly as possible, Form 1040X to correct errors and make changes.
If a 1099-C is received for a deceased person does the administrator have to file a return if they were no other income?
Sure....and even without it, to actually close everything out the best, i should think you would want to have a final return filed.
The information it provides is put on your return.. The form itself isn't required to be submitted by you....the IRS already has one from whoever sent you yours...their computers are just looking to match the info they have with that on your return.
If you are issuing Form 1099 to your payees, you can get an extension to file the IRS copy by completing Form 8809. But if did not request the first automatic extension, it is too late now to ask for one. If you mean you received a 1099 from someone who paid you money (or you are waiting to recei…ve one), anyone can get an automatic six month extension to file their individual income tax return by filing Form 4868 by April 15. But if you do not pay your taxes, interest and possibly penalties start on April 16 whether or not you have an extension, so you have to take your best guess as to how much you owe and send that in with the extension form.

This is the question I get from every one of these clients. Fortunately, the answer is YES! However, when the bankruptcy laws were changed in 2005, various waiting periods were imposed. In every case, you can file bankruptcy again; it's just a question of how long you have to wait. Four Importa…nt Notes About Filing a Second Bankruptcy Case The first important note you need to know is that the waiting period starts from the date you filed your prior bankruptcy petition and ends on the date you filed your second bankruptcy petition. The second important note is that you only have to wait if you received a discharge in your prior case . If you did not receive a discharge, you can file immediately. For example, if you filed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case, and it was dismissed because you were unable to make payments, you do not have to wait at all to re-file a second case (provided, of course, that you meet other necessary criteria - speak to an attorney about this). The third important note is if your prior case was a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case in which you paid back your unsecured creditors at least 70%, then you do not have to wait at all. The final important note is that the waiting period does not prevent you from filing again; it just prevents you from getting a discharge. You can still file without waiting - you just do not get the benefit of the discharge. Why would you do this? If the sole purpose of re-filing is to stop foreclosure, you probably do not need to wait several years, as you still get the benefit of the bankruptcy stay in a Chapter 13 case as well as the ability to cure arrears with a payment plan. The Waiting Periods Are 2, 4, 6 and 8 Years Two Years If your prior case was a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case and your new case will be Chapter 13 , then the waiting period is only two years. Four Years If your prior case was a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case and your new case will be Chapter 13 , then the waiting period is four years. Six Years If your prior case was a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case and your new case will be Chapter 7 , then the waiting period is six years. Eight Years If your prior case was a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case and your new case will be Chapter 7 , then the waiting period is eight years. Important Note for homeowners in foreclosure: Even if you do not qualify to file again based on the above criteria, you can still file for Chapter 13 if the primary concern is curing mortgage arrears. In this instance, you will not receive a Chapter 13 discharge, but you will be able to cure all of your mortgage arrears and stop foreclosure. (MORE)
There are disadvantages and advantages in filing for bankruptcy that should all be considered before making such a major decision. Some other disadvantages include: Losing credit cards, Losing non-essential possessions, Inability to obtain a mortgage for some time, Embarrassment.

Usually no, a 1099 is for a subcontractor & generally you have to be regular for a req'd term.
It depends on what Chapter you file under and how complicated your case is. Your lawyer will definitely go to the meeting of creditors with you, where you sit before the trustee for an interview that, for most people, is a formality. If you have more assets than you are allowed to keep, the la…wyer will negotiate terms with the Trustee. This can take the form of surrender of assets or payment of cash in lieu of giving up assets (Chapter 7) or submission and amendment of your payment Plan (Chapter 13/11). If you have been accused of bankruptcy fraud or abuse, whether intentional or not, you will need an attorney to defend you through the process. This might cost extra. With all this in mind, your lawyer's primary job is to set you up before you file so that none of this bad stuff happens. And if it has to, your lawyer's job is to prepare you so that there are no surprises. The most important part of your lawyer's job is what happens before you file. This is not intended as legal advice. It is a general answer. Consult an attorney as to your specific situation. Henry Paloci Member, CA Bar and FL Bar http://www.cleanstartbankruptcy.com (MORE)

As a general rule, you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy in a dire financial emergency, where the level of debt is overwhelming and beyond your ability to reasonably pay it off. Most Bankruptcy attorneys advise that $10,000 is the min. amount of debt that anyone should have before consider filing Chapter… 7. Anything less, they say, is probably manageable There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about filing for Chapter 7. One of them is that filing will clear your credit report and give you good credit again....it does not. You get a "fresh start" in that private debts will get discharged, so you do not have to pay them. But your credit score and rating will go down the tubes, and will take a while to recover. This means that you will have a very difficult time when applying for any loans in the future. So you should think long and hard before filing bankruptcy and only do it in cases of financial calamity or emergency.

There are some complexities here, but the short answer is maybe (of course, it is never easy when dealing with the IRS). If the mortgage (or HELOC, Credit Card, Car Loan, etc) was only in one person's name... then the 1099C belongs only with that person. No wiggle room here. If, however, the note …was in both names, and both were responsible, then you could perform a split. You would need to include an explanation with your return that details your ex's Name and SSN, and likewise they should do the same on their return referencing you. This ensures that the whole debt is accounted for, but each of you becomes responsible for your own share - note it doesn't have to be a 50/50 split, but you do need to reach an agreement, otherwise it could come back to haunt you. A note about cancelled debt - you don't say what type of debt this is, but it is possible it can be excluded entirely by submitting form 982, therefore it does not matter who claims the amount. At a high level - in order for 982 to apply, there would have to be a bankruptcy, insolvency, or the debt must be fully representative of primary residence indebtedness. You should talk with your tax adviser to see if form 982 applies to your situation. (MORE)
Typically when you file bankruptcy, you have to disclose all theassets that you have. And so everything you own can be susceptibleto review by a bankruptcy court. However, certain assets can not be touched because they areconsidered essential for either your well-being or your means ofmaking a livi…ng. A car sometimes can not be touched because it isconsidered vital to your ability to make a living. However, different states have different laws on the treatment ofassets.
