I am in the process of settling over 120K in credit card debt spread over 4 different cards for about 25K. I am planning on submitting a worksheet showing insolvency but had a few questions:
1. In calculating total liabilities, how do I account for the current debt? Do I show the 120K as my credit card debt, the 25K settlement value as credit card debt or do I have to keep these debts out of the equation completely?
2. The CC companies state that they will be issuing a 1099-c by Jan 31. Will I have to wait to calculate my debt/assets at that time (Jan 31) or will the 1099-c show a specific date during the year when the debt was written off?
3. If the credit card debts are written off at different times, so I need to calculate my assets/liabilities for each time period?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
