Forgiven debt taken as income?

I've negotiated a repayment for my second mortgage but they have told me that they will take the difference as income and will file a Form 1099 for it. This year is the last year for the mortgage relief program. But since now I'm paying off the settlement, would the IRS count it on my 2013 taxes?
