Is there an established limit to how long after a debt has gone delinquent that a company can file a 1099C?

We had a vehicle voluntarily repossessed in Nov 2007.  They filed a 1099C in 2016.  I don't understand why they are able to submit this debt this much later.  Is there a clear precedent for this? An established length of time in which this can be filed?

If a 1099-C is issued in 2016, it has to be reported in that year. Please see the answer provided by another TurboTax agent:
