What states forgive a 1099-C?
None. A 1099-C indicates a debt has been cancelled. The amount shown in box #2 is the amount that should be reported as income on the person's federal tax return. The amount shown in box #3 is the interest amount (if any) that may or may not be tax deductible.
See my answer to post on "collections after 1099c???" Do you mean owe the difference to a creditor? Answer no 1099c is a confirmation that a debt has been canceled by the creditor. No further obligation of repayment by debtor is expected or can be requested. This may be income to you according to the IRS whom also gets a copy of the 1099c.
