State Specific Question About: TENNESSEE (TN)

Does anyone know how to calculate taxes on a short sale after they receive the 1099 form. This is for investment property.

loan amount forgiven is usually included in income. however, new law this year allows you to exclude a large part of this due to the economic conditions and massive short sale/foreclosure rates. go to and research it.

I don't believe you can get out of a 1099C on investment property , If you can please someone tell me. Anyways. You do have to add it to your income, but in my case it was about a wash , as I had about 65K in the property from a down payment and mortgage payment, so don't forget those. I just didnt get to take the 65K loss, like I would have under a regular sale. Now that being said I'm not sure if its add to your earned income or capital gain income. CPAs handling all that.

The new law doesn't apply to investment property.

Of course it doesn't. You're RICH! Haven't ya checked yer bank account?

So because you are so rich you get to call it income and pay more income taxes.
