Recent market conditions have resulted in a significant increase in the volume of IRS information reporting by servicers in regards to Form 1099 A (Acquisition or Abandonment of Secured Property) and Form 1099 C (Cancellation of  Debt). This increase also impacts the level of communication required among servicers to ensure filings with both the related borrower and IRS are completed in a timely and accurate manner.

To build on the 1099 Best Practices incorporated into IRP Version 7.0, CREFC is adding a 1099 “Reference Sheet” and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to assist Servicers in putting together 1099 Forms.
