Dear Member

With the passage of the state’s budget, NCAR encourages you to thank our legislative champions and those who stood up to support the policy priorities of REALTORS®.

This year’s budget addresses many of NCAR’s legislative priorities, including the MID and property tax deduction, Historic Preservation Tax Credit, and economic development programs like JDIG and the Film & Entertainment Grant program.  Here are some additional highlights.

  • No change to the current MID and property tax deduction.
  • Restoration of the Historic Preservation Tax Credit for residential and income-producing properties through 2020.
  • The Workforce Housing Loan Program receives $12.5 million in funding in 2015-6 and $15 million in 2016-7.
  • Multiple economic development programs also receive funding, including $3 million for the OneNC Small Business Fund, $2.5 million for Rural Economic Development Grants, $30 million for Film grants, and $63 million for Job Development and Infrastructure Grants.
  • The Housing Trust Fund retains its annual funding allocation of approximately $10 million.

Please take the time to thank your members of the General Assembly for their work on behalf of REALTORS® and property owners.

Take action today

Sincerely, Tony Smith 2015 NCAR President
