Taped Show this Sunday but “MUST LISTEN TO” radio! Ramifications of Debt Relief-short-sales, BK,Foreclosure-Christine Cromwell, EA our special guest!

Our Guest this week–Enrolled Agent, Christine Cromwell. Now does she look like your ordinary accoutant!!??

We have a great conversation on “Debt Relief” for you this weekend. The show is TAPED so NO calls will be needed. However, we do have Christine’s contact information below. Our show this week addresses the thorney issue of what happens when you sell your home for a lot LESS, via a Short-Sale, and have forgiveness of debt. Now let’s get our terms correct. You owe $500,000, sell it short for $250,000–you have “Debt Relief” of $250,000. We are NOT talking  if the bank  modifies your loan and lowers your loan amount by $250,000. NO–this is an IRS TERM which you better understand! That debt relief can be taxed at “Ordinary Income” during the year of your short-sale! You earn $65,000 a year? Then ADD $250,000 to that!! In other words you’ll owe the IRS BIG MONEY on your tax return! Christine touches upon this subject and how you can avoid it via insolvency, BK, etc. This topic makes  for a very lively discussion between Alli, myself and Christine. Have fun listening.  Next week we’ll be back with Sonoma County Fair information from the President of the Fair Board–Ross Liscum. Mike Trienen also talking about septic systems.
