Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief

Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief March, 2012

If you are like me, you are in the midst of the tax preparation haze.  I became an attorney with the hopes that my business would be that of the written word and I would never have to complete another math problem for so as long as I live.  As it turns out, the government has other ideas.  Each year we are forced to gather paperwork, receipts, and get out calculators, while we lament about how little we earned and how much of that we owe to the government so that it can carry on with programs that we don’t benefit from or don’t believe in.
I dislike tax preparation, not only because it is tidious, but also because it requires us to review the events of the last year, which in turn requires us to assess whether we achieved our goals.  After finishing my taxes and assessing the year, I consider 2011 to be a success for me individually, but to be fair, my expectations and living requirements were much lower than the average American. 
Due to the disappointing economy, approximately 1,334,663 foreclosures were filed in 2011 and that does not include the sizeable number of short sales that occurred.  What many Americans don’t realize is that in years past, if your house was foreclosed on, or you sold your house for significantly less than what you owed in a short sale, you were required to pay the full deficiency amount.  Due to current conditions, the lending institutions have rarely required this; however, you were still required to pay income taxes on any deficiency that was cancelled by the lending institution (because the cancellation of a debt is considered income).  In many cases, this could result in a tax bill of $50,000 or more.  Luckily, for those Americans in this sitation, Congress enacted the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act.
Congress enacted this bill in 2007, as a result of the declining economy.  The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act allows you to exclude certain cancelled debt on your principal residence from income.  Debt reduced through mortgage restructuring, as well as mortgage debt forgiven in connection with a short sale or foreclosure qualifies for relief.  The relief is only in effect through 2012, so if you have considered these options or are considering these options, you need to act fast to qualify.  If you need tax preparation help, you may call my office for a referral to a local, knowledgeable, friendly accountant.
