Debt Forgiveness Letter Template | Sample

Updated June 23, 2023

A debt forgiveness letter informs a debtor that they no longer have to repay the creditor for money owed or other liabilities. This letter is usually sent after the creditor has decided that either it isn’t worth posting the debt to collections or they may benefit just as well from accounting for the receivable as a loss on their tax return. Either way, the individual that receives the form will no longer be subject to pay the collection.
