Financial Stability:  Preparedness is success waiting to happen.  If one is well-prepared with the proper tools for a specific, positive goal, then their success is only a matter of time and persistence; however, if one does not prepare themselves for a specific, positive goal, then they will be preparing themselves, by default, for a negative goal, which they have not chosen.  In business and personal affairs, the specific, positive goal is financial stability and the default, negative goal is bankruptcy.

TAXATION OF FORECLOSURES FOR INVESTMENT/RENTAL PROPERTY

If you are insolvent (ALL of your total assets are less than ALL your total liabilities) when your rental properties are foreclosed on, then there is no taxable income from the cancellation of the debt.

However, if the SMALLER of the fair market value of the property being foreclosed OR the amount of debt on the property (most likely the FMV of the property is lower) is GREATER than the adjusted basis of the property (usually the original cost plus improvements less depreciation), THEN you will have a taxable capital gain on the foreclosure.  If it is LESS than the adjusted basis, then you will have a deductible capital loss.
