Huge Homeowner Tax Break Expires December 31, 2016

Capitalize on Last-Minute Tax Breaks by Contacting a Real Estate Attorney

An advantageous tax break expires December 31, 2016, bringing serious financial implications to homeowners in need of a short sale and mortgage debt forgiveness. Specifically, the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, which allows homeowners to exclude up to $2,000,000.00 of income from forgiven debt on their principle residence, is set to expire at the end of 2016. Leading experts on this issue do not believe the Act will be extended or reinstated.


Homeowners that sign an agreement of sale by December 31st will still qualify for the exception, even if the sale occurs in 2017. In other words, there is one month remaining for owners to get under contract to avoid crippling income tax owed to the IRS, through a mandatory lender-issued 1099-C.

The most important part of the short sale process is gaining lender approval – Dash Farrow has the extensive experience, background and knowledge necessary to provide homeowners the result and relief they require.
