I received a 1099C form. Where do I go in my tax return to add this information?

If your debt is cancelled or forgiven, you'll receive Form 1099-C (Cancellation of Debt). Most of the time, cancelled debt is taxable, but there are exclusions and exceptions. We'll check for those after you've entered your 1099-C.

To enter your Form 1099-C in TurboTax, please follow the steps below: 

  • Sign in to TurboTax (if you're not already signed in).
  • Click on the Take me to my Return button
  • Click on the Federal Taxes tab
  • Click on the Wages and Income tab
  • Scroll down to Less Common Income
  • Click Start on Miscellaneous Income, 1099-A, 1099-C 
  • Click Start on Cancellation of debt (Form 1099-C) and continue through the Interview questions.

Note: If you received a 1099-C for your main home and another 1099-C for something else (credit card, car loan, second mortgage, etc.) you won't be able to use TurboTax, as the interview doesn't support this.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
