my 1099c does not show how much my lawyer got as payments. My settlement was much less then the

amount. How can I correctly indicate the correct amount, even though I did submit Legal Fees .

The lawyer was paid out of money you technically received which is generally taxable.  See Topic No. 431 Canceled Debt – Is It Taxable or Not? | IRS to determine the taxability of your income.
