In the process, I finally (on the last day!) got a bit of research in on the foreclosure. And I really was supposed to get a 1099. In fact, one of two: A 1099-A or 1099-C. So I finally got around to calling Ameriquest, which is apparently now City Financial (or maybe Citi Financial, for all I know). They'll fax me a "new" copy.
Within 72 hours.
Special feature: The contents and type of the document, of which I'm not really aware, will have an enormous impact on my taxes.
Which means the usual answer (File an extension!) doesn't really work, because you still have to pay with an extension.
Gosh this is fun! And all my fault, too!
Well, back to the rest of the mess...
