Income tax for unemployed You must both show an intention to abandon the property and affirmatively act to abandon the property.

Income tax for unemployed For more information, see Sales and Exchanges in Publication 544.

Income tax for unemployed    If you abandon property that secures debt for which you are not personally liable (nonrecourse debt), the abandonment is treated as a sale or exchange.
