Mortgage Tax Call For Action Update

On Thursday, November 5th, the House of Representatives voted, 354 to 72, to approve an amendment to remove the extended G-Fee (charged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) from the highway bill.
The amendment to HR 22 was sponsored by Congressmen Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) and Bill Huizenga (R-MI). The main bill, H.R. 22, a 6-year, nearly $340 billion highway and transit bill passed by a vote of 354-72.
The bill will now go to a House-Senate Conference. The early indications are that the Senate will agree to the House version. NAR will continue the current Call for Action with modified language asking Members of Congress to support the House version of the bill.

C.A.R. is urging all REALTORS® to respond to NAR’s Call-for-Action, even if you have responded to C.A.R.’s earlier request to call Congress.

As one last incentive to increase participation, C.A.R. is holding a sweepstakes.

All eligible C.A.R. REALTOR® members who respond to the Call-for-Action, including those who have already responded, will be entered into the C.A.R. 2015 Call-For-Action iPad Air 2 Sweepstakes for a chance to win one of ten iPads. That’s right. There will be ten iPad Air 2s given away.

You will have had to respond to the official NAR Call-for-Action sometime between October 15th (the day the Call-for-Action went live) and November 20th (or whenever NAR pulls the Call-for-Action) whichever is first.

We are also urging REALTORS® to help educate your clients, family, friends and the public about this issue.
