Many of these reports speculate that a change to the long-standing policy that allows home owners to deduct mortgage interest payments from their income taxes could be part of a "Fiscal Cliff" deal. Encourage your members to "remind" Congress about our position on any proposed changes to the mortgage interest deduction. Learn more.
