    • @571f66dbee31976b67e537babef034d0:disqus Can you explain what that means and how it relates to the debt management programs that the non profits offer?

    • These appear the result of the nonprofit credit counseling IRS examinations that had been in the work for some time and not the result of any debt settlement activity.
