Call to Action: Do No Harm to Housing

By now you have seen numerous news reports concerning the “Fiscal Cliff.”  Many of these reports speculate that a change to the long-standing policy that allows homeowners to deduction mortgage interest payment from their income taxes could be part of a “Fiscal Cliff” deal.

NAR’s position is that the mortgage interest deduction is vital to the stability of the American housing market and economy and we will remain vigilant in opposing any future plan that modifies or excludes the deductibility of mortgage interest.
