Tax Deduction (State and Local)

NAR supports legislative efforts to reinstate the full deductibility of state and local taxes. At a minimum, NAR urges legislators to index the current $10,000 cap for state and local tax deductions to inflation and to remove the marriage penalty by increasing the deduction cap for joint returns to $20,000, twice the amount of that for single filers.
