NAR, in coalition with other real estate industry groups, joined a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives Leadership opposing legislative efforts to undermine the Supreme Court's ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, the case decided in June 2018 which gives states the authority to require online sellers to collect and remit sales tax.
The U.S. Department of Treasury issued the latest in a series of reports aimed at improving regulation of the U.S. financial system. NAR provided feedback to Treasury earlier this year on this initiative, highlighting a number of topics of importance to REALTORS®.
