Protecting the Mortgage Interest Deduction

If you haven’t seen it already, the National Association of Realtors has issued a Call for Action to protect the mortgage interest deduction. 

The California Association of Realtors web site says the President’s Deficit Reduction Commission has released preliminary recommendations to change how the country spends money and collects taxes. One of its provisions calls for dramatically limiting the mortgage interest deduction.

NAR has issued a Call-for-Action and is asking all REALTORS® to call their members of Congress and urge him or her to preserve the MID. As the housing market continues to recover from the worst financial crisis in recent history, any change that reduces the ability of the market to heal is misguided and must be rejected.

Please contact your member of Congress today. When you connect to NAR’s Action Center, enter your name, e-mail address, and your phone number. NAR’s phone system will immediately contact that phone number. You will hear some brief talking points and then be connected to your representative’s office. It’s a quick and easy call. Please make it today.
