Call for Action Alert: Stop the Housing Tax for Transportation

NAR needs your help on an important call for action. Congress is considering a proposal that would create a tax on all potential homeowners and consumers looking to purchase or refinance a mortgage. By increasing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's credit risk guarantee fees (g-fees) to fund transportation programs, Congress would disturb the housing recovery.  Now is not the time to raise the cost to purchase or refinance a home.   Click here to send a letter to your Congressman and US Senators urging them to stop the housing tax for transportation.   

You can also sign up to get CFA alerts on your mobile phone by texting REALTOR to 30644.
