Victorville, CA |
they also are going to report the cancellation of debt to the irs and credit bureaus though. does anybody know how this will affect my credit? good or bad? what tax consequences will i have with the irs?
Cancellation of a debt will affect your credit history. Your credit history will likely say that the debt was forgiven/charged off. With regards to the tax consequences, you should see a tax professional.
