Newly Introduced Legislation

Did you know?

California Representative Jimmy Panetta in March introduced legislation with Mike Kelly from Pennsylvania that doubles the amount of money homeowners can exclude from declaring on their taxes when they make a profit on the sale of their home. Under the “More Homes on the Market Act,” when a homeowner sells their home, they’ll be able to exclude $500k for single filers and $1 million for joint filers. It would also be indexed to inflation moving forward. Currently, the legislation only allows for single filers to exclude $250k in gains and $500k for joint filers. The amount, set in 1997, hasn’t changed in 26 years.
