"Fiscal Cliff" Real Estate Extenders

"Fiscal Cliff" legislation passed. Here are some of the details that effect real estate (from the National Association of Realtors website). Good news for most homeowners, especially people who are in need of a short sale or are going to end up in foreclosure, and people who are planning to buy a home.

Real Estate Tax Extenders:
  • Mortgage Cancellation Relief is extended for one year to Jan. 1, 2014
  • Deduction for Mortgage Insurance Premiums for filers making below $110,000 is extended through 2013 and made retroactive to cover 2012
  • 15-year straight-line cost recovery for qualified leasehold improvements on commercial properties is extended through 2013 and made retroactive to cover 2012
  • 10 percent tax credit (up to $500) for homeowners for energy improvements to existing homes is extended through 2013 and made retroactive to cover 2012.
