How is a deed in lieu of foreclosure treated?

Thanks for your article on short sale v. foreclosure. What about a deed in lieu of foreclosure?

Thank you, Selma

Hello Selma,

A deed in lieu of foreclosure is taxed the same as a foreclosure. The tax law focuses on settlement of debt by a transfer of property.

Good luck!
