Calls for Action are an essential advocacy tool for REALTORS®. Make sure your voice is heard!
We use “Calls for Action” when legislators, at the state and federal level, are considering legislation that directly impacts the real estate industry. By responding to a REALTOR® Call for Action, you will be sending a direct email to your representatives and letting your voice be heard.
National Calls for Action:
Congress is threatening to do away with tax incentives for homeowners, such as 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?
Take action now and tell Congress not to harm homeownership.
