Great News From NAR Today - J oseph M. Ventrone, VP, Federal Policy & Industry Relations reports that NAR Lobbyists worked diligently on our behalf to get r elief for both  1031 like-kind exchanges  and  opportunity zone investments  and are already underway. Both of these programs are designed to promote economic growth in communities, and NAR made the case that investors in these programs should not be harmed due to the effects of COVID-19. 
·          1031 Like-kind exchanges. If an investor has taken the first step of a like-kind exchange by selling the old property, and either the 45-day or the 180-day deadline falls between April 1 and July 15, the deadline has been extended to July 15. 
·          Opportunity Zones.  If an investor who sold a capital asset planned to roll over the gain into an Opportunity Fund and the 180-day deadline to do so falls between April 1 and July 15, 2020, he or she can make the investment as late as July 15.   Read More

·         Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA): The CARES Act includes a new Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program expanding unemployment benefits eligibility to business owners, self-employed workers and independent contractors, including most REALTORS®. This means if you’re unable to work as a direct result of the pandemic and you aren’t eligible for ordinary unemployment insurance benefits, you may be entitled to PUA benefits.
 
·         Small Business Administration (SBA) Loans: The federal government, through the SBA, is providing significant relief for small businesses suffering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most agents are likely to be eligible for loans that are being made available through the SBA. The CARES Act makes the following options available to REALTORS®:
·         Paycheck Protection Program Loans (PPP)
·         Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL)
·         SBA Express Bridge Loans (EBL)
