CURRENT CALL TO ACTIONTAKE ACTION NOW
As a REALTOR, you have no doubt heard about the tax reform plan being debated in the United States Senate. The Tax Cut and Jobs Act threatens homeowners with a loss of tax incentives and a reduction in home values. Eliminating the state and local property tax deduction and changes to the capital gains exemption will increase taxes now and when a home is sold. These incentives are critical for a strong housing market that creates jobs and builds stable communities.
Take action to tell the United States Senate to reform our tax code AND protect middle class homeowners.
The United States Senate is missing an opportunity to improve housing markets across the country, and we need your help to tell them to get to work and make homeownership a priority!
Take action now to urge your Senators to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program. The United States Senate voted to pass a three-month extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The House of Representatives is expected pass the legislation on Friday, September 8, 2017 and the President is expected to quickly sign the bill into law later in the day. This legislation ensures that the NFIP will not lapse on September 30, 2017. NAR will continue our legislative advocacy efforts for the 21st Century Flood Reform Act until this long-term reauthorization and reform bill is enacted.
