Short sale vs. foreclosure with investment property...

Asked by Robert Blotske, Rifle, CO Wed Nov 2, 2011

Ok so if an investor short sells a few homes he will be issued a 1099c for the forgiven amount, so would it be better to let the bank foreclose and file for a BK? Seems to me the investor would then not have a tax burden as no 1099c would be issued nor a deficiency, am I missing something here? Sure he will have a foreclosure and BK on file but at this point he does not care!
