Generally, when you borrow money and the lender later cancels or forgives the debt, the IRS requires you to include that cancelled debt amount in your taxable income for the year of debt forgiveness, depending on the circumstances. The reason for this inclusion of income is that when you borrowed the money, you were not required to include the loan proceeds in income because you had an obligation to repay the lender.
