my husband and were received a bankruptcy discharge September 2008, which included a home loan. They foreclosed on us the following year, per our attorney this is "normal" becuase even though we had no mortgage any longer due to the bankruptcy, they still need to foreclose to take the property back. It was foreclosed on September 2009 and now, Jan 2010 we have received a 1099-A form stating that the balence was 84,516 and the FMV was 50,000 and box #5 states "yes" we are are liable for the repayment of the debt. What does this mean? is this an error? I thought the bankruptcy cleared it all away. How does this affect how I need to do my taxes this year? HELP!!!
