The IRS today released an advance copy of Rev. Proc. 2011-55 which sets forth guidance for state housing finance agencies and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to follow in submitting information reporting statements for payments made to, or on behalf of, financially distressed homeowners pursuant to Notice 2011-14.
