I just got off of the phone with Joe.  He received a tax document called a 1099-C in the mail from Chase.  He has a credit card with Chase that he hasn't paid in about a year.  A month ago, he received a letter from Chase stating they were no longer going to be collecting the debt he owed.  He really didn't think anything of it until he got an IRS form 1099-C.   He isn't sure what impact, if any, this will have on his taxes.
