Cancellation of Debt - Is it a True Thing Or Not?

I am going to write this post in hopes of helping someone else who is in a similar situation. I found when looking on the internet for information about a Cancellation of Debt it was very confusing so I am going to try to simplify for others.

To start I guess I need to say about 12 years ago my husband returned a vehicle that he had purchased about 6 months earlier. He purchased a Suzuki Vitara and we had nothing but trouble with it for the whole time we had it. It stayed at the dealership over half the time. We complained and complained and everyone told us we were stuck with it until we could trade it. Since back then we really didn't know any better we just took it to the bank and told them we were just going to have to default on the loan.
Well to make a long story short, they repossessed it and sent us the balance. Needless to say we did not have almost $8000 to give for something we don't even have. After a few months the bank put a judgement on my husband to try to collect the money. Depending on the state you live in there are different laws on how a bank can collect on a judgement. In our state, North Carolina the bank can not collect if you do not have it basically. So for the past 10 years we have had this hanging over us. Honestly if I had it I would pay it just to get rid of it. We have a special needs child and I feel he is much more important than paying for something that was a lemon to begin with and should not have even been sold to us.
Ok well that is the basics of what caused us to get a letter saying it was a Form 1099-C and we had to report it to the IRS because they also sent a copy of the letter to the IRS. Let me explain what a 1099-C is exactly before I explain why this was a fake. A 1099-C or Cancellation of Debt is a form sent once a collector has decided to forgive a debt you owe. You have to basically pay taxes on the forgiven amount as if it were income because in the eyes of the IRS that money is income even though it is not physical money. You can find out more about what a 1099-C is by watching the YouTube Video on this post.
First sign that I thought this was not a TRUE Cancellation of Debt- It was a LETTER not a form and second the amount on the letter did not match the amount on the judgement (I later read that the amount should actually be less than the original debt) , third thing was the date on the letter stating the cancellation event was in July but in November we got a letter trying to collect on the judgement. After calling my lawyer and talking to him I decided to call the number on the letter to find out if the debt was actually cancelled or forgiven, since we had not received anything else stating this I wanted them to send me something before I go and claim it has income.
The first person I talk to acted like they didn't know what I was talking about so he sent me to another person. This person goes on to tell me that this letter was just something they do to inform the IRS of a debt owed and that the word "cancellation" was deceiving because it is not a forgiveness of a debt. (I can argue with that since on the back of the letter it plainly states it IS a forgiveness of a debt, but I didn't feel arguing would get me anything). He said you know this debt is owed so why would we forgive it.  He went on saying that the debt was still owed and the judgement had been renewed for 10 more years back in January 2012. I knew this since I had gotten something from the courthouse (it was also the fourth reason I thought it was a fake). This person went on to ask me why we have not paid and if we could agree on a amount so we could pay off this debt.
After all is said and done I figured out this was just a trick to get in touch with us or scare us into paying the debt. I guess they think people are scared of dealing with the IRS and would prefer to just pay. I don't know what they were thinking by sending this because IF we had put it on our taxes then I would expect they would be in trouble for lying and screwing up my taxes.
I hope this post will in some way help others if they ever get a Cancellation of Debt from a collector. If you have any doubt about it call someone.

Destiny Cover Reveal Prize Pack Giveway

Gabriella is a witch. The problem is, she doesn't remember.
She repressed the memories of her powers years ago when her mother was
murdered. Now, the warlock who was responsible for her mother's death has set
his sights on Gabriella. He is determined to use her fear to turn her to the
dark side of magick…even if it kills her. Her mother's spirit is reaching out
to warn her, but even that she pushes away. Desperate to save her daughter, the
spirit finds a male witch–one that just happens to be in love with Gabriella.
Darron is more than willing to help but the two young witches will have way
more to battle than just an evil warlock. There are overbearing jocks and petty
rich girls who get tempers flaring and often set Gabriella and Darron at odds. 
There is more to the story than Gabriella and Darron could even
imagine. There are terrible secrets to be revealed, battles to be waged, and
lives will be lost. Only after Gabriella and Darron both come to terms with who
they really are, and open themselves up to the true meaning of magick, can they
have any hope of fulfilling their destiny.
Available on Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes & Noble.  

Destiny Unveiled
Gabriella and Darron thought their magickal battle was over
when they defeated the evil warlock, Richard. When her Aunt Donna seeks
Gabriella's help in rescuing her catatonic daughter from the Dark Coven, Gabriella
discovers that her cousin holds a power within her that would be catastrophic
in the hands of the evil witches. Gabriella's coven sets out on a journey that
may be their last. Along the way, they meet new allies, face devastating
treachery, and battle not only the Dark Coven, but the darkness within
themselves. When Gabriella finally comes face to face with the cousin she never
knew existed, her true destiny is unveiled, and the fate of the mortal world is
in her hands.
 Available on Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes & Noble

About the Author





“Luna” DeLuca lives at the beautiful Jersey shore with her husband and
four children. She loves writing in the young adult genre because it
keeps her young at heart. In addition to writing fiction, Laura is
also the editor of a popular review blog called New Age Mama.  Her current works include Destiny,

The Giveaway

To celebrate the release of the new covers, Author Laura DeLuca is giving away a prize pack that includes a oil diffuser, incense and burner, decorative wooden keepsake box, lavender scented drawer liners, a crystal point, stone pendant, and signed copies of Destiny & Destiny Unveiled with the original covers.

Shop is also donating a beautiful altar set inspired by the original
cover of Destiny Unveiled. 

The book's cover was recreated on the altar box lid; the design was
first set in pyrography, painted, stain and given a protective coating
of high gloss polycrylic. The flower Celtic knot pentagram is worn by
Gabby and her friends as a symbol of unity and has been pyrographed on
the altar tile. Red paint was floated around the perimeter to
coordinate with the Blood Moon of the cover. A red rose in full bloom
was used on both millefiori* pieces; the censor and charcoal tongs. It
symbolizes the Gabby's destiny being unveiled. 

A scene in the
book tells of the young hero doing spell work on the beach using a drift
wood wand to cast a circle and sea shells to form a pentagram. Both of
these have been included as well as censor sand and a roll of charcoal
disks so you can perform your own ritual. Whether you're just starting
to walk the path or have for years, this kit makes an attractive
addition to your ritual tools.

One lucky winner is going to receive both these fabulous prize packs. To enter, just fill in the Rafflecopter
below. This giveaway will end on  3/28/13. Open to
the US only. The
winner will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to reply.
