The U.S. House of Representatives passed a historic $2.2 trillion COVID-19 rescue package today, sending it to President Trump for his signature.
The bill contains numerous benefits for REALTORS® that NAR fought hard for during the past three weeks, including unemployment eligibility for the self-employed and independent contractors; unprecedented aid for small businesses; and a delay in business payroll tax payments.
