REY’S REAL ESTATE RECOMMENDATION

December 22, 2017
Tax reform legislation passed by the U.S. House and Senate has been signed into law by President Trump.
As I have written before, there are many elements of this new law that impact current and future homeowners. All individual provisions of the measure are generally effective after December 31, 2017 for the 2018 tax filing year and expire on December 31, 2025 unless otherwise noted. The provisions do not affect tax filings for 2017 unless noted.
To read an analysis by the National Association of Realtors (NAR)—and how the legislation impacts individual homeowners—please go to https://www.nar.realtor/taxes/tax-reform/the-tax-cuts-and-jobs-act-what-it-means-for-homeowners-and-real-estate-professionals
NAR advises that the organization will be providing ongoing updates and guidance to its Realtor members in the coming weeks, as well as working with Congress and the White House to address additional concerns through future legislation and rulemaking. Congressional lawmakers have already signaled a desire to fine tune elements of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” as well as address additional tax provisions not included in this legislation in 2018, and REALTORS® will need to continue to be engaged in the process.
I will continue to update you on these future actions and to learn more about this topic and also pick up additional news, join us each Sunday on the “All Things Real Estate” radio show (12-2pm Mountain Time) on Santa Fe’s 1260 KTRC-AM, or via streaming at the “Listen Now” link at ATREradio.com.
