Re: 1099-C / IRS / Portfolio Recovery

I received email from the IRS on this and.......Only a financial institution CC or bank can issue a 1099-C!!


The OC must try to collect by almost any legal means up until your state SOL  Then they can issue a 1099-C. The 1099-C must be issued within 1 one year.

Re: 1099-C / IRS / Portfolio Recovery

CamilleandBella.....I was wondering what IRS # do you call to dispute this situation?  Your local office?  I just recently received my 1099c on a credit card from almost a decade ago and am looking to see how I can fight this.  Any advice/suggestions would be appreicated.  Thanks!
