Extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act through 2013? The Senate committee managed to pull together enough votes Aug. 2 to pass the debt relief extension, after heavy lobbying by the National Assn. of Realtors and the National Assn. of Home Builders. The bill, which moved to the full Senate for possible action in September, also would extend tax write-offs for mortgage insurance premiums for 2012 and through 2013 and continue some energy-efficiency tax credits for remodelings and home construction. Has anyone heard any rumblings about this extension????
