IRS adds foreclosure help section to website

Last update: September 17, 2007 – 9:12 PM

The IRS said Monday it has added a new section to its website to answer tax questions for those losing their homes to foreclosures.

The new section on includes a worksheet to help homeowners determine whether they are eligible for any foreclosure-related tax relief.

For those who find they owe additional tax, the section includes a form for requesting a payment agreement with the IRS.

The tax agency noted that if the debt wiped out through foreclosure exceeds the value of the property, the difference is normally taxable income. But a special rule also allows insolvent borrowers to offset that income to the extent their liabilities exceed their assets.

Thanks Blossom,

Takes a lot off my mind.  I didn't think being insolvent was so great until now.

Read the rules for form 1099-C. It applies to almost all sub prime loans.

Pass-throughs and REMICs.   Until further guidance is issued, no penalty will apply for failure to file Form 1099-C, or provide statements to debtors, for a canceled debt held in a pass-through securitized debt arrangement or held by a REMIC.

They don't have to report it. Don't let them trap you.
