Carbon is oxidized from the -2 to the +2 state. Iodine is reduced from the zero state to the -1 state
Since carbon is being oxidized, then iodine is reduced, and iodine can only be reduced to -1. 

The problem is that carbon is oxidized from -2 to +2 in both CHI3 and HCOO-. 
The final equation is ... 

C2H5OH + 4I2 + 6OH- --> CHI3 + HCOO- + 5I- + 5H2O
