On April 25, the House Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing on Federal tax provisions that affect residential real estate.

In announcing this hearing, Chairman Dave Camp said, “As we continue to work toward comprehensive tax reform that makes the Code simpler and fairer so that more jobs with better pay are created, it is important to do a top to bottom review of the Code. Homeownership is an integral part of the American Dream, and the tax code has long provided a variety of incentives to make it easier for families to buy and own a home. Before considering any proposal, the Committee must better understand how tax reform might affect the housing sector and this hearing is an opportunity to hear directly from both academic experts and industry stakeholders.”
