Need some tax advice

My husband passed away in late 2014 and he had a couple of credit cards and at that thime those companies told me at the time I was NOT responsible for repaying because I was not a co-signer. Now i have received 1099's showing those written-off balances as income. Because we were married, do I have to claim those write-offs as income? Really need a tax professional or lawyer to weigh in on this. Thanks!

Who Opposes Affordable Housing?

Additional affordable housing has been proposed for Rogers Park but the local Chamber of Commerce opposes it. The Chamber's secretary, an alternative priest who preaches in in an Elmhurst Masonic Lodge and has a postal address near Gary, Indiana, speaks against affordable Rogers Park housing and calls the Alderman a "concubine of big box interests." https://www.facebook.com/bishop.wilkowski Why is the local chamber being supported by outside religious interests and opposing affordable housing in Rogers Park? Shouldn't the chamber support commerce and not oppose it? Has the local chamber gone roque?

    https://www.facebook.com
  • Michael Archangel Same swamp but now restocked with new predators!

    @Pedro Garciano - Do you really think that the intention of the OP was to question the motives of alderman or is that just how you want to hijack the thread to promote your point of view?

  • The original post is a thinly veiled hate post towards the chamber.

    So who really cares who hijacks it or for what.

    Hate has no home here indeed.

    Waaaay back before there was EB or even Facebook Joe Lake was the major thorn in the side of a "developer-friendly" Ald. Matlak, the predecessor to Ald. Waguespack in Bucktown.

    I've been accused of being a thorn in the side of a developer-friendly Alderman, in a weird and limited way I am like the younger Joe Lake before he became an over-posting creepy dude with a LOT of time on his hands serving up online condescension by the bucket-full.

    I hope he is happier nowadays.

    What fascinates me is the "dialect" many of our students speak - then they wonder why employers won't hire them into the workplace. We need to encourage "correct" English so they have a chance at jobs. This is why some students elect to go to private or charter schools -

    @Gabriel - the current product of public schools is why parents sacrifice to pay for private or charter schools - they want to offer their child an better opportunity to graduate with the knowledge and language skills needed to land at least a middle income job and begin a career - good parents want more for their children then they experienced. As a person who interviewed and hired many individuals I was amazed at the lack of communication skills of public school children - often i couldn't understand their English. The good news is they helped me to scale down the candidates.

Eric Vaughn Still Awaiting Trial 3 Years After Wil Lewis Murder

Appearantly crossing the "T's" and dotting the "I's" is a lengthy process. Gang affiliated, violent habitual criminal Eric Vaughn still has not gone to trial for the Murder of Wil Lewis for which he was responsible. Let's hope that our criminal justice system is merely p being prudent in its prosecution rather than dropping the ball in procrastination and that this filth will never breath air as a free man again in his lifetime.

    Change the laws rather than the enforcement policies? You do know that medical marijuana is legal under IL law, yet Jeff Sessions has announced the DOJ will ignore state laws legalizing recreational and even medical use & possession of marijuana and enforce the stricter (and wrongheaded) Federal laws, do you not? Regardless of what statutes & ordinances are on the books, enforcement and prosecution are entirely discretionary and often carried out for reasons other than public safety.
