Mortgage Debt Relief EXTENDED to 2015 | By: KREIA Newsletter

Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act Extension:

Over the course of the first two weeks in July, National REIA’s lobbying arm in Washington, D.C., in concert with National REIA board member Tom Zeeb (KREIA’s October Speaker), has met with the key sponsors of legislation to extend the short sale tax break retroactively for 2014 and through 2015.

The extension of this tax break, which prevents the IRS from taxing cancelled debt during the utilization of short sales, is critical to restoring the use of short sales.

Since the failure to extend the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act into 2014, short sales have fallen dramatically since the passage of the tax break implementation in 2008 to 2013 and through the passage of FHFA’s National Standard Short Sale Program, another product of National REIA’s lobbying arm.
