2013 "fiscal cliff"
Senate 'Cliff' Bill Retains Mortgage Cancellation Relief - Mortgage Debt Relief Act Extended for Another Year
A number of what lawmakers call extenders are in the bill. Extenders keep in place expiring tax provisions. Of most interest to real estate, the bill would extend mortgage cancellation relief for home owners or sellers who have a portion of their mortgage debt forgiven by their lender, typically in a short sale or foreclosure sale for sellers and in a modification for owners. Without the extension, any debt forgiven would be taxable, which, for underwater households, represents a financial burden.

Normally, debt forgiveness results in taxable income. But
under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007, enacted
Dec. 20, taxpayers may exclude debt forgiven on their principal
residence if the balance of their loan was less than $2 million.
The limit is $1 million for a married person filing a separate
return. Details are on Form 982 and its instructions, available
now on IRS.gov.
