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"

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Box 5 is checked. The form indicates that it was an overpayment. It is not related to my home.
Tax Professional: Lev, Tax Advisor replied 2 years ago

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.
