Extension of mortgage debt relief law backed by Senate panel

Chattanooga homeowners who are facing financial challenges and struggling to pay their mortgages may get some good news.

It was scheduled to expire in December, which would mean that debtors who had gone through foreclosure or bankruptcy would have to pay huge amounts in taxes on the amounts that had been forgiven. For consumers that have worked to eliminate debt, this would cause even more financial difficulty.

Unpaid medical debt may not go away after being settled

In the meantime, many people have mountains of medical debt piling up that they are unable to pay back.
