Congress Renews Mortgage Debt Relief Act!

 

On January 1, 2013, Congress passed an extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act. This extension of this act, which has saved homeowners more than $1 billion dollars in taxes, is great news for struggling homeowners nationwide.

 

The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act was originally passed in 2007 to aid the millions of homeowners who suddenly found themselves in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure following the housing market crash.

 

Under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, any debt forgiven in a short sale, foreclosure, or loan modification, is exempt from federal taxes on primary residences. For homeowners facing foreclosure, this exemption saves them from paying thousands, or even tens of thousands, in taxes on top of losing their homes.

 

The act, however, was only extended through December 31, 2013. So if you or someone you know is facing the threat of foreclosure, it is important that you act now to take advantage of this tax exemption. As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) agent, I am specially trained to help homeowners escape the threat of foreclosure.  I can help find a solution. My email is robin@pcr1.com
