In this update on short sale tax implications we will address taxes on both on the federal and state level.

FEDERAL TAXES: On the Federal level, The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act was renewed which will, for one more year, exempt the taxation of mortgage debt that is forgiven when homeowners and their mortgage lenders negotiate a short sale or loan modification (including any principal reduction).


C.A.R. is sponsoring SB 30 (Calderon, D-Montebello).  SB 30 will conform state law to the federal law passed last week.  Upon passage of SB 30, the measure will be effective retroactive to Jan. 1, 2013.
