Short Sale on Main Home Is Not Cancellation of Debt Income in California
IRS answered to Senate Barbara Boxer in a Chief Council letter dated September 19, 2013 that short sale of a CA principal residnece converts the mortgage to a non-recourse loan, and for federal income tax purpose, it is treated as a sale, not cancellation of debt income.
Franchise Tax Board confirmed that California would follow this federal treatment as the state conforms to the relevant portions of the federal tax law governing the forgiveness of mortgage indebtness.
Simplified Option for Claiming Home Office Deduction Starting 2013
