Reporting Repossessions and Cancellation of Debt Income On-Demand Webinar


Financial hardships cause taxpayers to abandon properties, have their properties foreclosed upon, file bankruptcy and restructure their debt. Tax preparers have seen more Forms 1099-A, Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property, and 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt, included in taxpayers’ year-end information. Our job is to determine whether the taxpayer has taxable income as a result and how to report it. Additionally, we will review when to use Form 982, Reduction of Tax Attributes Due to Discharge of Indebtedness (and Section 1082 Basis Adjustment).


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Illustrate how the taxpayer reports Form 1099-A and Form 1099-C
  • Determine whether there is taxable income from the cancellation of debt (COD)
  • Identify the deemed selling price when reporting a Form 1099-A sale
  • Complete Form 982
