Tweak to Tuesday Tour?

Are you interested in having SFAR explore a tweak to Tuesday Tour?

Tell us what you think now!

Take Action Today to Oppose the Mortgage Tax!


If it walks like a duck,
it's a duck.


And if Congress calls a tax a “fee,”
it’s still a tax.


Congress is trying to tax homebuyers to pay for the new transportation bill by creating a new mortgage tax and disguising it as a “fee.” But it’s a tax, pure and simple.

The Senate recently passed a long-term transportation funding bill, and included a new tax on mortgages to pay for it, calling it a “fee.”  This "fee" for highways burdens homebuyers for something not AT ALL related to their mortgage. 


Take Action Today to Oppose the Mortgage Tax!

Stop the Housing Tax for Transportation


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.

NAR strongly believes that taxing homeowners to pay for transportation programs places an unnecessary long-term burden on consumers and this action will disproportionately impact low and moderate income borrowers, as well as first-time homebuyers. 

Tell Congress to stop taxing homeowners to fund transportation projects.
