Please define "Interest in Retirement Accounts" in regards to insolvency due to Cancellation of Debt

Asked almost 2 years ago - Dallas, TX

I need clarification on an Insolvency Worksheet. Interest in retirement accounts? I have 40K total in State Teachers Retirement , it earned 5% in 2012, the year I received the 1099c. I've seen conflicting answers on these sites and my CPA is not even sure. Bottom my asset 40K or 2K? Thanks in advance

    Answered . Why this question would buffalo a CPA is certainly a mystery. On the basis of your statements, if the retirement account is all yours, your interest is the value of the asset, $40K. $2K is the annual income.
