Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act
There seems to be some uncertainty surrounding whether Congress will again extend the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act (H.R. 3648), as it did last year when it extended the Act until the end of this calendar year.
The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act allows you to avoid paying federal income taxes on canceled debt on your primary home, but only if that debt was used to buy or improve that home.
If you qualify under the provisions of the law, your short sale, deed-in-lieu or negotiating a loan modification with your lender that waives the repayment of a loan balance must be agreed to and concluded by the end of 2013. If your closing happens in 2014, you run the risk of closing after the law expires which will mean homeowners may also end up with a substantial tax liability.
Being a tax issue, you would be well advised to consult with a CPA or tax accountant before making any decisions… the question of whether you would, will or won’t have a tax liability depends on things like the state in which you’re living, the specific type of debt, whether it’s your primary residence or a rental, even what you used the money for, as in for a vacation or the addition of a sun room.
P.S. For more information on the how mortgage debt forgiveness is treated under the Internal Revenue Code, click here for the page of IRS site that addresses the topic: The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act and Debt Cancellation.
