Q: A short sale on 2010. The bank never sent me 1090 form. The IRS said the bank never sended. The bank forgive the debt?
I try to make a business loan and the lender ask me for the forgive letter for the shor sale.
A: Unless the bank expressly waived its right to collect the deficiency, it has until July of this year to sue on the deficiency. If the bank agreed to waive its right to collect the deficiency, it would have given you something in writing at the time of the short sale.
