Analysis of the Tax Cuts Bill and Affects on Homeownership >
While NAR remains concerned that the overall structure of this bill poses problems for homeowners and the broader housing market, the conference committee made some important improvements to the House and Senate legislation. Partial portions of several tax deductions were restored, which are beneficial to homeownership and the economy. Several sources credit the large and sustained response of REALTORS® and other housing groups for these favorable changes.
