A 1099-A form is typically used for tax reporting purposes. It is related to foreclosure. If someone owned a home that was foreclosed upon by the bank, they will receive this form from the bank for their taxes. This form may also be used if a property is abandoned by the owners. This is because if a home is foreclosed on or abandoned, the government will treat it as a sale from the previous owners back to the bank.
This form is required because if a home is abandoned or foreclosed on, the debt remaining on the property must be dealt with. This form will confirm that a property has been abandoned or foreclosed on so that debts can be cancelled and the property can be re-sold.
