Generally a bank will consider a spouse just as responsible for the mortgage even if they are not on the loan itself or even title. As long as the mortgage itself has been paid on time then you can do what is known as a family deed transfer and I know of several banks that will do so with no hassle. Basically it's done the same way as a refinance except you are bringing someone new on title with better credit in most cases. The catch is 1- it has to be someone you are related to (in your case, your wife so it's fine) and 2- The person currently on the deed/title has to come off. The rates will naturally be much better than in a bankruptcy refinance and it's much easier than going through the hassle of a sale, with the attorney's, the contracts, inspections, etc.

What do you need to know about filing your tax return if you have filed bankruptcy during that year.?

No, you still owe the government. Bankruptcy proceedings begin with the filing of a petition with the bankruptcy court. The filing of the petitions creates a bankruptcy estate, which generally consists of all the assets of the person filing the bankruptcy petition. A separate taxable entity is created if the bankruptcy petition is filed by an individual under chapter 7 or chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The tax obligations of the person filing a bankruptcy petition (the debtor) vary depending on the bankruptcy chapter under which the petition was filed. Generally, when a debt owed to another is canceled the amount canceled or forgiven is considered income that is taxed to the person owing the debt. If a debt is canceled under a bankruptcy proceeding, the amount canceled is not income. However, the canceled debt reduces the amount of other tax benefits the debtor would otherwise be entitled to. This information is not intended to cover bankruptcy law in general, or to provide detailed discussions of the tax rules for the more complex corporate bankruptcy reorganizations or other highly technical transactions. For additional tax information on bankruptcy, refer to Publication 908, Bankruptcy Tax Guide. See
