Debt Relief Options

Bankruptcy imposes significant costs on borrowers and has long-lasting effects on your credit rating. Before filing for bankruptcy, you may want to consider other debt relief methods, including:

  • Mortgage loan modifications
  • Loan workouts
  • Interest rate reductions
  • Deferred-payment plans

Keep in mind that with certain exceptions for qualifying mortgages any reduction of your debt outside bankruptcy may be taxable income to you. That means that if you reduce your debt from $50,000 to $30,000, you may be taxed on the $20,000 reduction just as if it were cash income.
