Received a 1099C. Vehicle was repoed and company sold vehicle it. This is not income for me. Live on the reservation
Chances are the car lender sold the car for less than you owed them. To make your life miserable, they have taken the loss on the car, and have treated the remainder of the car loan that was not paid as a "reduction of debt" for you. Thus they give you the 1099C-Misc. Income Statement. You should talk to your accountant or tax advisor to determine the options available to contest the income statement you refer to. It is not the easiest process, but it can be done. However, you may find that your accountant informs you that the amount does not cause a significant change in your tax filings, so it may not be necessary to take any remedial steps. Best of Luck in bringing an acceptable closure to the situation.
