      Homeowners that are in the midst of a short sale or anticipating selling their home short this year can utter a sigh of relief that the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 has been extended to December 31, 2013.  It has survived the Fiscal Cliff!! Homeowners who experience a reduction in the principal amount of their mortgage through a short sale or even a deed in lieu will now not have to pay income tax on the amount that has been forgiven.  In order for homeowners to qualify for this Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, the mortgage must have been on their principal residence.  The amount forgiven must be $2,000,000 or under.

New Tolls in effect for New York New Jersey Crossings Sorry folks but as of December 2nd, 2012 these are the new rates, see chart below in the link. http://www.panynj.gov/bridges-tunnels/tolls.html We hear a lot about “Fairness” in the news today, we who need to use these crossings on a daily commute, are wondering just how fair this is.  Anyway, if you are coming over any of these connections, check the rates for your car before you head on out. If you are a regular EZ pass user, you may not even be aware of the increase.
