Chapter 7 discharge and filing income taxes

Posted on: 24th Jan, 2012 10:20 am
Have a question:

I filed for Chapter 7 and included both my 1st and 2nd mortgages in the Chapter 7 and have since obtained a discharge. I got the discharge about 1 1/2 years ago, and the lender has not foreclosed on the property as of yet. Since this is the time for tax season, I'm wondering if I still need to file the depreciation and other expenses (up keep) with regards to the property when doing my income tax return this year, or because I have a discharge is this something I am not responsible for any longer?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Hi John,

Though you have received a discharge, you're liable for the maintenance of the property. You should speak to a tax adviser and take his opinion in this regard. He will guide you and let you know whether or not you need to file the depreciation and other expenses.
