Since you filed a Tax Return for 2014 with the IRS, the easiest way to fix the problem would be to file an Amended Return which includes the amounts shown on the 1099-C and attach the IRS form which under certain circumstances excludes forgiveness of indebtedness income. Read and follow the directions to get this resolved without an audit of your return.
Good Luck!See question

You and your mother have my sympathies. Unfortunately, while the inquiry arose from Sunbury, Pennsylvania, I am unable to tell whether your nana's death occurred while she was a resident of Pennsylvania at the time of her death. I am unable to answer your question, if she was not a resident of Pennsylvania.I also have changed the area of practice for you question to probate where you may get a wider response if she was not a resident of Pennsylvania.See question
I have a rent-to-own agreement with my grandmother to purchase her home. We signed it back in 2012. We didn't transfer the deed at that time, because she still had a mortgage on it. We had planned on doing a $1 transfer once the mortgage was pa...
You should immediately contact a local Elder Law attorney to disclose all of the relevant facts with the benefit of the attorney-client privilege which you do not have on AVVO, a public forum. There are other potential issues besides Medicaid eligibility including whether there are other liens against the property, whether it may be a fraudulent transaction, whether it is a gift, whether it may be subject to inheritance tax if your grandmother were to die within a year of the transfer.See question
I spoke to 1 lawyer who will charge me $3500 for his services. I have student loans, credit card, taxes, and car payment.
What is/are your question(s)? As for the fee $3,500.00 without all the facts, no reputable attorney will likely respond.See question
Due to my divorce/ custody case, attorney fees are piling up and I am unable to pay my consumer debt as I had once been able to. I've tried calling each to go on payment plans and/or any programs they offer for financial hardship, but I'll be payi...
Anything is possible, but certainly not recommended. Do you go to a Dentist if you have a tooth ache, or to a Doctor with chest pain?
You have already indicated that you do not fully under the chapter 13 process and requirements which require that you list ALL OF YOUR DEBT and cannot exclude your car loan, student loans or anything related to renting my house.
Suggest you do yourself a favor and consult either with your divorce lawyer or a consumer bankruptcy lawyer in your area.See question
At the time of the judgment, we were not even aware we were being sued. Talking to our attorney at the time, his take was to let the lien sit for five years at which time it would expire, and this would be the cheaper and smarter thing to do sinc...
If your attorney told you that the lien against your real estate was only valid for 5 years, that is not correct. If the lien is not revived after 5 years, it loses its lien position. Your attorney's observations that Allegheny County judges never open judgments once properly entered. The "good news" is that the Allegheny County Records Dept.personnel are not correct as the lien once entered can be revived up to twenty years after filing, unless not previously revived.
Without additional facts it is not possible to answer what options are available to you. Suggest you consult with either with the attorney who gave you the advice, or get a second opinion from a real estate lawyer.
I have also changed the area of law to real estate.See question
My wife and I won a judgement over a contractor. He never paid us that judgement and now we received a notification that he (and his wife) have filed chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Make sure you file a Proof of Claim. You may wish to consult a Bankruptcy Attorney to consult as to whether your claim is a secured or unsecured debt and whether it my be non-dischargeable at least against the contractor.See question
My mother passed last year without a will & unfortunately still had a mortgage on her house. My brother who's the oldest of 3 siblings at 60yrs old, and who was primary caregiver for my mother upon her passing, lived with her & remained in the ho...
Basically the answer to your question is NO! There is a third party interested in the probate, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Revenue for an Inheritance Tax Return and possibly the Estates Recovery Program, if your late mother received any state benefits like Medicaid.
Suggest you consult with an attorney to discuss all of the facts and and to deal with the Bank or its attorney handling the foreclosure to protect any interest in any other assets of the Estate as well as if the property is sold.See question

The short answer is NO!. PA is not a community property state. Under the circumstances the both of you should consider consulting with a family lawyer concerning whether it would be advisable to negotiate a pre-nuptial agreement before proceeding with marriage.See question
