CALL FOR ACTION FROM NAR: PREVENT NEW TAX BURDENS ON REAL ESTATE

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with IRES LLC
Congress is considering changes to the tax code in order to pay for a number of tax provisions expiring in 2010 and two of these provisions would impact real estate:
  • The first would require all owners of rental properties to file IRS 1099 forms for all contractors they do business with if they pay that contractor $600 or more in any given year. This onerous provision would apply to even the smallest landlord.
  • In addition, Congress is considering taxing "carried interest" at ordinary income rates instead of capital gains. Carried interest rules govern how general partners in real estate investments pay taxes when the investment is sold. These new tax burdens will further delay the real estate market recovery. These proposals are ill-advised, inopportune and potentially destructive. Please click here to tell Congress to oppose them today.
