Information about Foreclosure Program 3648

This is an information site about H.R. 3648. The program is no longer active.

The federal government enacted H.R. 3648, the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, to help stem the tide of foreclosures by removing the tax burden resulting from debt reduced through mortgage restructuring, as well as mortgage debt forgiven in connection with short sales. H.R. 3648 has been extended through 2012 under The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, H.R. 1424. The Obama Administration has continued to pursue the foreclosure problem with the Financial Stability Plan that helps homeowners and lenders find solutions and alternatives to foreclosure.

Foreclosure Program 3648 is a privately sponsored nation-wide initiative to reach out to homeowners who are struggling with their mortgage payments and provide them with the information, guidance, and actual work that is required to avoid foreclosure. Certified Foreclosure Program 3648 Specialists volunteer their time to assist as many homeowners as possible and all services provided by Foreclosure Program 3648 are always free for every homeowner.
