which K-1 form should I receive if I loaned money to a business that was unable to pay me back and the debt is being written off?

Customer:

Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

Customer:

How are you today?

Customer:

This would not be a K-1, it would be a 1099

Customer:

And the proper 1099 for bad debt is 1099-C

JACUSTOMER-cgwvg21l- :

So, I they should send that to me?

Customer:

No, if you lent the money you would send it to them.

JACUSTOMER-cgwvg21l- :

okay, should I receive a K-1 showing the investment/loan?

Customer:

No, you will not receive a K-1 for this purpose

Kory,

You also will not need to file a 1099-C because you are not in the buiness of making a loan.
