returns Introduction This publication explains the federal tax treatment of canceled debts, foreclosures, repossessions, and abandonments. 2011 tax returns Generally, if you owe a debt to someone else and they cancel or forgive that debt for less than its full amount, you are treated for income tax purposes as having income and may have to pay tax on this income. 2011 tax returns Note. 2011 tax returns This publication generally refers to debt that is canceled, forgiven, or discharged for less than the full amount of the debt as “canceled debt. 2011 tax returns ” Sometimes a debt, or part of a debt, that you do not have to pay is not considered canceled debt. 2011 tax returns These exceptions are discussed later under Exceptions . 2011 tax returns Sometimes a canceled debt may be excluded from your income. 2011 tax returns But if you do exclude canceled debt from income, you may be required to reduce your “tax attributes. 2011 tax returns ” These exclusions and the reduction of tax attributes associated with them are discussed later under Exclusions . 2011 tax returns Foreclosure and repossession are remedies that your lender may exercise if you fail to make payments on your loan and you have previously granted that lender a mortgage or other security interest in some of your property. 2011 tax returns These remedies allow the lender to seize or sell the property securing the loan. 2011 tax returns When your property is foreclosed upon or repossessed and sold, you are treated as having sold the property and you may recognize taxable gain. 2011 tax returns Whether you also recognize income from canceled debt depends in part on whether you are personally liable for the debt and in part on whether the outstanding loan balance is more than the fair market value (FMV) of the property. 2011 tax returns Figuring your gain or loss and income from canceled debt arising from a foreclosure or repossession is discussed later under Foreclosures and Repossessions . 2011 tax
