I believe you need to send in a Statement in Support of Claim VA 21-4138, with the changes. That is what I would do, because there are changes.
Hope that helps.

It is not uncommon to get the money before the letter in the mail. You should get the letter this week, Check the address the letter it is suppose to go to.
I believe but am not sure, if the letter that comes states your father is incompetent, and if you do not contest it, they will keep sending the money while appointing a Fiduciary. Debbie will have to comment on this or any one else that knows.

I think it would depend on what your total income in versus your expenses.

Now that makes sense. Then you can do what I did , I did it myself or get help from the volunteers that help elderly do income tax. You will need form 982  to attach to income return and it also has instructions that you should read to understand what you have to do. You can go to IRS.gov and download forms.
You really should mail this in and  attach work sheet that you use for form 982, so that the IRS will understand what you did and  they will not have to ask for more info. But you need to do it now.
let me know if you need help.

If your father settled with Citibank, they should have issued him a 1099-C on the unpaid debt. This is what was is confusing to me. Every place I have checked on the web says this.
The tax people should be able to fix this.
12  General Aid & Attendance Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Collection of Debt on: March 27, 2013, 12:55:19 PM
by settling the debt, you must mean he paid part of it off but not all of it and the taxable income is the part he  did not pay off. If he was insolvent at the time he should not have to pay tax on it. If your father has no taxable income, he did not need to pay this because they cannot go after his VA money. If he went to Legal Services for the Elderly, they would have notified citibank about this, free of charge to your farther. I am pretty sure this can be fixed, it sounds alot like the 1099-C, cancellation of debt.Part of the debt was cancelled.
What you need to do now is find tax help for the elderly in your area and they should help your father fix this on his income tax. There are free clinics in most areas, usually held by AARP up until April 15.
In many areas they are held in the Public Libraries. I would do this now

The person I am taking care of has no taxable income so he is receiving the max also.
 He had a credit card, issued before A&A, but because he had no money he could not pay it, and Bank of America, knew he had no money to pay, so they cancelled the debt. They are required by law to send a from 1099-C, cancellation of debt to you and the IRS. They issued him one dated 12/31/12.
 What I did was fill out a form 982 and attached it to the 1040, I send in to the IRS for the 2012 tax return. The 982 is used to show a person was insolvent at the time the debt was cancelled. I enclosed the worksheet also to show what I did. When you do this it shows insolvency. This cancels out the 1099-C, and it is no longer considered reportable income on your income tax.
I found out how to do this on the internet, by someone who had to do this for his mom who was in the same situation.
The IRS.gov web site also tells you how to do this.
Has anyone else had to do this?
Should I explain this to the VA or will the tax return from the IRS be enough?

I meant to say a form 1099-C. A cancellation of debt. Is this what you mean?
15  General Aid & Attendance Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Collection of Debt on: March 27, 2013, 09:29:27 AM
