The more voices we have, the more Congress listens.
NAR has done most of the work. You just need to respond with a few clicks of the keyboard so NAR can go fight for us on Capitol Hill as a million members strong.

If you don't respond to this Call For Action, Congress won't think it's important to listen to NAR. TAKE ACTION NOW.

Tell Congress - Do not raise taxes on middle class homeowners in order to cut taxes for corporations.

As a REALTOR you have no doubt heard about tax reform plans from Washington, DC. Now Congress is threatening tax incentives for homeowners, like the mortgage interest deduction and the state and local property tax deduction. These incentives are critical for a strong housing market that creates jobs and builds stable communities. Do not let tax reform become a tax increase for middle class homeowners.

Homeownership is the bedrock of our industry and we need to make sure any tax reform legislation protects middle class homeowners.
Did you know that American homeowners already pay 83% of all federal income taxes?
Did you know that some of the tax reforms under discussion could result in a drop of more than 10% in home values?
Did you know that after the 1986 Tax Reform Act property values in the commercial sector dropped significantly, negatively impacting state and local tax revenue?
Did you know that home-owning families with incomes from $50,000 to $200,000 could face average tax hikes of $815 in the year after enactment?
