A Few Instances Where You May Owe Income Taxes After A Northeast OH Short Sale

Northeast OH – The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 allows most people to short sale their home and not owe any income taxes on the forgiven debt.

However, there are a few situations where a homeowner may still owe taxes after a short sale.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

According to the IRS’s Website, here are the following situations where you may owe taxes after a short sale or foreclosure.

* If you are being forgiven of more than $2 Million on your principal residence.

* If you are being forgiven of more than $1 Million on your principal residence and you are a married person filing a separate return.

* If the debt being forgiven was from a refinance and the proceeds of the refinance was not used to improve your residence.

(If you refinanced your house and used the money to improve your residence, then you wouldn’t be taxed on the forgiven debt. I would talk to an accountant to get all the details before trying this strategy.)

* Forgiven debt on second homes and other properties that are not your primary residence are not eligible for tax relief under this law.

There are other ways to get tax relief, but they are not covered under this law. Thinking about a short sale?
