NOMAR REALNews - Dec.11

Take the Call for Action NOW!

In Washington, DC, the House and Senate have each passed their own versions of Tax Reform. Now, those bodies are meeting to do what REALTORS® do every day - negotiate. As the two sides meet for negotiations, we need to stand together as REALTORS® to encourage them to do two things:

  1. Retain the current law on Mortgage Interest Deduction to maintain a total cap of $1 million on primary and secondary homes; and,
  2. Retain the current law on Capital Gains Exemption of up to $250,000 for single filers and $500,000 for joint filers who lived in a primary residence for two of the previous five years.

Take Action Now!
