Bankruptcy and Insolvency Exception to IRS Rule That Debt Forgiveness or Debt Cancellation is Taxable

Bankruptcy specialists want debtors to be aware that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is taxing people on debt forgiveness in cases involving foreclosure, short sales, deed in lieu of foreclosures and settlement of credit card or unsecured debt. As a general proposition, if you owe someone money and that person or company cancels or forgives the debt you may have to pay tax on this income. IRS Publication 4681, entitled "Canceled Debts, Foreclosures, Repossessions and Abandonments," explains in detail the situations on when debt forgiveness is taxable and the bankruptcy and insolvency exceptions.
