Refinancing house under water using capital gain money.I bought my house for $80,000 more than what it was appraised last year when I refinanced. In order to be able to refinance I took money from my IRA account; my question: Is it possible to avoid taxation on the money taken out of the IRA account considering that it was applied to a home that is not longer worth it?
