Interesting to those seeking settlement with Cap 1?

SchoolbusKid has a separate thread regarding American Collections Enterprise and in searching for whatever poop I could find on them, I found this:

Account Balance Days Since Charge-off
0-90 91-180 181-730 >730
$0-$1,500 70% 70% 50% 50%
$1,501-$3,000 70% 50% 50% 40%
>$3,000 70% 50% 40% 40%

Know what this is? Yep, you guessed it! It's Cap One's guidelines in accepting/offering settlements based on amount owed and time charged off!! This apparently regards in house charge off collection and via CA.

Hopefully, some of you guys can use this!! :smileyhappy:

Re: Interesting to those seeking settlement with Cap 1?

I THINK that would be about $1324 (give or take a little bit).

My "chart" didn't post very well, and TBH, though I know HTML, I'm not in the right frame of mind to fix it at this moment. I'll fix it tomorrow, though ...

I think the main problem is that it's confusing the way that it's displayed!!! :smileymad:

Just remember...if you settle and they forgive more than $600.00 you will get a 1099 for tax purposes.

oracles:
 
Sometimes Creditors, like Capital One use the form IRS 1099-C for a forgiveness of debt (the balance of which is not paid) when a settlement is reached.   
 
So say you and the creditor agree to 40% of the balance.  Then the other 60% is reported to the IRS on form 1099-C (forgiveness of debt) where you will report that as income on your IRS-1040.

Anytime they forgive more than $600 the IRS requires the creditor to file a form 1099C and give you a copy.
 
Since it is money that you got (either a cash loan or spent using a CC, etc) and you don't have to repay it, you have to include it as income and pay taxes on it.

Re: Interesting to those seeking settlement with Cap 1?

thanks for the clarification, now is that including interest, because my friend has a balance owed of 1500 but because of interest, they want $3269. Is it off of the balance plus interest or just balance. Also if he settles, in ny they have a 5 year rule that it will come off if paid, but is that the same as settling. thanks
