It is so important for everyone to get this word out to the many homeowners who are considering a short sale - please pass the word and help them get the help they need.

Great news for homeowners! The Mortgage Debt Relief Act which was originally scheduled to expire December 2012, has been extended another year. This Act was enacted in 2007 as a way to help homeowners who have had to short sale their home. Without the Mortgage Debt Relief Act, any debt forgiveness from the principle balance of their mortgage would have been considered taxable by the IRS.

Thanks to this new extension, any debt forgiveness will continue to not be taxable income. This is wonderful news for homeowners that still may owe more than the current market value of their home.

To find out what your home is worth, click here now! Or for a free, no obligation consultation, call Gina McKinley at (480) 355-8645 today. For information on how the Debt Relief Act will affect you, please contact your accountant.

Hi Carol.  Why just one year?  Why not 5 years?  Congress is clueless.
