Call For Action!
We need your help. Homeownership is under attack.

Tomorrow, Thursday, March 9th at 8:00 a.m.,the Oregon House Human Services & Housing Committee will hold a hearing on HB 2006.

The bill would effectively  eliminate the Mortgage Interest Deduction for many Oregonians throughout the state. The Mortgage Interest Deduction has been a foundational component of homeownership since the inception of the federal tax code.

Now is not the time to reduce valuable incentives for homeownership. Help protect the American dream!
