Mortgage bankers support Republican tax plan

The Mortgage Bankers Association have given a thumbs-up to the Republican tax reform framework, another indication that the GOP tax push so far is avoiding outright opposition from the important housing sector.

David Stevens, the group's CEO, wrote Republican leaders to say that the Mortgage Bankers Association looks forward to supporting the tax effort, and that "potential changes should be viewed holistically" — meaning that the package as a whole is worthwhile even though it would crimp some housing tax breaks.

"I wish to express our support for the efforts you are leading to enact comprehensive tax reform," he wrote.

So far, the housing industry has split somewhat on the tax plan. The National Association of Homebuilders expressed support for the plan, and its members even voted to contemplate changes to the mortgage interest deduction to continue working with Republicans.

The National Association of Realtors, however, have criticized the framework on the grounds that it would double the standard deduction. That provision would be a "backdoor elimination of the mortgage interest deduction," the group said, because it would lead more people to take the standard deduction rather than itemizing mortgage interest costs.

Mortgage and banking groups express concern over efforts to derail an overhaul of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

“As you both have made clear on numerous occasions, housing finance reform must go through Congress to create stable, sustainable housing markets that best serve our nation’s communities," the groups wrote in the letter also sent to members on the Senate Banking and House Financial Services committees.

“We fully endorse this point of view, and believe the debate over recapitalizing a broken system distracts from the critical structural issues that Congress must address to ensure that the federally supported secondary market serves key, bipartisan objectives,” they wrote.

The housing and mortgage groups argue that Congress must pass legislation that makes key structural reforms before a decision is made about how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will retain capital.

"Allowing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to create a capital cushion simply converts a potential future draw on federal funds into an immediate draw and such an action would effectively increase the size of taxpayer exposure to future losses,” they wrote, noting a Congressional Budget Office report from 2016.
