If you received a 1099C, then you may have a tax liability. Please ask your tax accountant.

I'm not familiar with 100-c.. But Cancellation of debt is listed on a 1099-C.. However, Much more info is required to answer your question directly, but in general.. The Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007 generally allows homeowners to exclude such cancellation or forgiveness of debt on their principal residence. This law was updated so as to apply only through the end of 2014. So if you had this cancellation of debt in 2014 or earlier, then no.. you would not have to include it as income.. Current laws state that if you are "insolvent" then you would not need to count it as income.. Insolvency is the total of all your assets less all your debts.. if you have a negative number, then you're considered insolvent and you wouldn't be required to add that income.. Otherwise, you would.. Talk to your CPA or tax preparer,,, I'm sure most will be up to date of 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt (Phantom Income)..
