At this time, we don’t know whether the Congress will extend Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act for more years. If this program is not extended then homeowners will be responsible to pay taxes on the forgiven mortgage amount.
For example, if your mortgage balance is $800,000 but the house sells for $600,000 at the current market value then there’s a shortage of $200,000 to your bank. If you do a Las Vegas short sale by 2012 then there’s no taxes to pay but if sell after 2012 then the shortage of $200,000 will consider as your income because it’s a loss to your bank, in this situation you pay taxes on that $200,000 which will be a huge amount which will affect more to your financial situation.
According to the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, if a homeowner borrows money up to $2 million dollars to buy a house and does short sale due to hardship then the lender forgives the remaining balance and the homeowner is not responsible for paying taxes on the forgiven amount.
This act applies to primary residences and not for investment properties. If you would like to know more about Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act cancellation of 2007 then click here to view official website.
