Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Please verify on form 1099C box 5 - if your were personally liable?Then - is that debt related to your personal home?And finally please clarify hwy do you thin that is "over-payment"
If that is over-payment refunded to you - means you are paid back amounts which you previously paid to them - we should NOT have form 1099C.I suggest immediately contact the sender and request corrections.
Be sure to keep track of all your communications - because if they refuse - you will need to provide adequate explanation to the IRS and will need to tell what steps you make to resolve the issue.
When you communicate I suggest to do both - send them a letter (via certified mail) and contact over the phone.
