We work hard to keep your personal and financial information safe. Together, we can prevent your information from getting into the wrong hands. If you believe that an unauthorized person has accessed your account, call us immediately at (800) 321-9637.
The IRS requires us to file Form 1099-C, “Cancellation of Debt”, because we discharged a debt you owed of $600 or more. For more information contact the IRS or consult your tax advisor.
Not necessarily. Unless our contract with you specifically provides that we will not seek to recover a deficiency from you, the filing of the 1099-C simply reflects that Exeter has discontinued any further collection activity on this account.
No. Under applicable law Exeter is not required to file a revised 1099-C. Please consult your tax advisor or the IRS to determine the effect of any subsequent payments on your tax liability relating to the discharge of this indebtedness.
To request another copy please contact us at (844) 478-5451.

Yes. The extension of the payment(s) will impact your original term. For example, if you have a 60 month term and receive a two month extension your term will now expire at the end of the 62nd month, not after the 60th month. However, the terms and provisions of the contract, except as herein modified, remain in full force and effect and are incorporated herein by reference.
Yes. During the payment extension period, interest will continue to accrue daily and may result in a larger final payment.
Yes. Please be aware that the extension of your payments does not include the extension of insurance and/or GAP coverage, if any, where a separate charge was included in the contract. For example, if you are in possession of a GAP product that originally covered your terms (i.e. 60 months) and receive a two month extension, anything after the 60 month term is not covered under the GAP contract.
The Buyer and Co-Buyer assume(s) full responsibility for extending such insurance and/or GAP coverage.
Ask your dealer about possible vendors to determine if you may be covered under a separate agreement.
This depends on the state in which you live.
