Schedule H is pretty easy to fill out. It is important to understand the question before you answer it.

Question 1

If you do not have any codebtors, check the box that says "No".

Question 2

  • In the last 8 years, If you have not lived in one of the states listed here, check "No." and go to question 3.
  • If you have lived in one of these states, check "Yes" and answer the rest of the questions.


Question 3

If you have a codebtor, list their name and address in the first column.  You must try to find your codebtor’s address if you do not know it.

You have already put the debt you have with each codebtor on Schedule, D, E/F or G. Check the box on Schedule H next to the schedule where you put the debt.  Look at your Schedule D, E/F or G.  List the line where you named the creditor.
