  • Senator Stabenow Measure to Protect Homeowners from Higher Taxes Passes Senate Finance Committee

    U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, a senior member of the Senate Finance Committee, today praised Committee passage of her Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Act, bipartisan legislation that protects underwater homeowners from being hit with huge, unfair tax bills by the IRS. Her provision, included in legislation to extend expiring tax provisions (the EXPIRE Act), ensures that homeowners who owe more on their mortgages than their homes are now worth would not be hit with additional income tax if a portion of their mortgage is forgiven as part of an agreement with their lender. Without Sen. Stabenow's legislation, homeowners - for the first time since housing crisis began - would be required to pay taxes on this phantom income when they refinance or sell their homes in what are commonly called short sales.
