    I figured I would jump on turbo tax and do our taxes. Got all my paperwork in so why not right? Well we got a 1099-c from a credit card for cancellation of debt. I know we have to claim the amount as income, I understand we have to pay taxes on this. However turbo tax won't let me enter the ammount, it just says I should talk to a tax expert, lol. I don't need a expert, I just want to enter the amount. So it seem like I have wasted 2 hours filling in information just to realize I guess I can't use turbo tax this year. Anyone know of another online tax site that is good, and that will let me put in the 1099-c so I can get these taxes done?

    Just print the forms you need from a government website and do your taxes manually. You should be able to review from Turbo Tax what you have filled in so far.

    I always dread this month. My appointment with the tax lady (she's been my patient for 21 years) is on Feb. 18th. I love her to pieces, I just get stressed, always worry I'll owe!

    husband did ours Sat night.
    It was weird having to enter information from an actual "job" for me.
    Been nearly 7 years since I worked outside of the home.
    Most of our refund will be going to the house though. Same as always. Someday I will actually get to put money in savings again.

    Thanks I will check out TaxAct.com, I really want to do them online. Would love to use turbo tax again, but I think they need to fix thier program if it won't let you enter 1099-c info unless it was a house foreclosure.

    why do you have to count your credit card as income if they cancelled the debt? [​IMG]

    Did I miss something along the way here? That isnt income...... is it??
