Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act Extended through 2013

Real Estate Agent with Kona Home Team (luva llc) RS 62947

Homeowners can relax a little again; Congress has included an extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act in an eleventh hour bill to avoid a possible fiscal cliff crisis. The Act was scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012, but has been extended, in the American Taxpayer Relief Act- until December 31, 2013.

The stakes were incredibly high. With almost three million mortgage loans in, or near foreclosure, five million more borrowers suffering with high-rate loans that they have not refinanced, and nearly 12 million borrowers whose mortgage debt adds up to$600 billion more than the homes are worth. The law, as it stands now, makes debt forgiveness tax exempt when related to a mortgage on a consumer's primary home that is valued at $2 million or less, the borrower can avoid the tax burden that normally comes with mortgage forgiveness.
