What of Regulations

  • Changes to Dodd-Frank financial regulation: A clear positive would be the lifting of compliance costs imposed on small sized banks. Around 10,000 local and community banks fund construction and land development loans. With less regulatory burden, these small banks can make more loans and will boost home building activity
  • Changes to financial regulations on large banks like Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo could again lead us back to the days of cowboy capitalism and consequent exposure to a massive taxpayer bailout.” (Lawrence Yun, NAR)

Tax Changes

  • Reduction in taxes paid by individuals and corporations
  • Collapse the current 7 personal tax brackets to 3 brackets
  • Increase standard deduction for both single & married Eliminate the federal estate and gift taxes
  • Repeal personal exemptions & cap itemized deductions
