Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Act of 2013

Official Title

To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to extend for 1 year the exclusion from gross income of discharges of qualified principal residence indebtedness.


Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Act of 2013 - Amends the Internal Revenue Code to extend through 2014 the exclusion from gross income of income attributable to the discharge of indebtedness on a principal residence.
    Please extend the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 for at least another 5 years. There are still MANY homes that are underwater where residents can no longer pay their mortgage and must walk away. This ripple effect from the mortgage meltdown starting in 2007 is still working its way through the economy. Please extend the dates of this act. This is an excellent way to help middle class families.
