I surrendered my used 1994 Nissan Quest GXE Van in 2001 to AmeriCredit. This was my second finance company, after my first finance company/car dealership went out of business in 1999. AmeriCredit changed my interest rate from 9.5% to 19.5%.

It was my second car, but even I knew this  dramatic increase was suspect, so I asked them to come get my car when they would not refinance the loan. The next week, I bought the same type of car with leather interior for $3,000.00

In 2011 - AmeriCredit Financial filed a 1099C directly to the IRS for the year 2009 - reportedly for a value of $7,000. The IRS sent a notice of income increase based on this Automobile Loan gift. I disputed the release, since I did not know why they said I turned in a car in 2009.

The IRS investigated it to remove the tax increase, yet despite the lack of evidence and my impeccable Federal tax record up to the point, they allowed the 1099 C to remain without stating why.  I had to pay both Federal and State tax increases with a penalty for two years being delinquent.
