Legislative Minimize

 Homeownership is an important part of the American way of life, and there may never be a better time to buy than today! 

HOW TO COMPLY AND MITIGATE THE EFFECTS OF THE OVERTIME RULE:  Despite strong opposition by NAHB and other leaders in the nation's small business community, the Department of Labor (DOL) last month issued its final overtime rule, which will more than double the current overtime salary limit of $23,660 to $47,476.  Set to take effect on Dec 1, the rule will have significant ramifications for many employers, including home building firms and non-profit organizations.  NAHB continues to lead the effort to urge Congress to quickly pass the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act.  The legislation would force the DOL to withdraw this rule until it has considered the effects it would have on small businesses, consumers, workers and the economy.  For more information, contact NAHB's Suzanne Beall at 800-368-5242 X 8407.  PLEASE NOTE:  FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKS OVERTIME RULE!  A federal judge on November 22, granted a preliminary injunction to delay implementation of the Department of Labor's new overtime rule.  While the injunction is only temporary, the ruling sent a strong signal that Judge Amos Mazzant  would likely side with NAHB.  Working with House and Senate lawmakers and members of business coalition, Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity, NAHB has been leading the effort to mitigate the effects of the overtime rule.

New ProtectHomewonership.com Website - Mortgage Interest Deduction Threatened. The National Association of Home Builders has launched a new website, www.ProtectHomeownership.com, to bring attention to the threat to homeownership and action to protect it.  The site addresses the Mortage Interest Deduction threat along with the tax, legislative and regulatory policies that would make mortgages and small business loans unaffordable and difficult to obtain.

$5,700 - Add up the dollar value of NAHB's advocacy victories and other services and you get an average of $5,700 per housing start for a typical home builder.  That's a big number, and a tangible sign of the value that NAHB delivers for members.  Below are selected advocacy victories achieved in 2015.

$1,440 - Lower FHA Mortgage Insurance Premiums; $689 - NAHB Defeats Proposal to Raise Mortgage Guarantee Fees; $287 - Energy Efficient Home Tax Credit Extended; $259 - PMI Tax Deduction Extended; $358 - Energy Efficient Remodeling Tax Credit Extended.  These numbers represent the value per housing start a typical builder will see in 2016 as a result of key NAHB advocacy victories achieved in 2015.  Some members will experience more of these benefits than others.

Builders, remodelers and consumers who utilized energy-efficient building products and techniques in 2012 should take advantage of two key housing energy-efficient tax credits that were renewed and extended as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations.  NAHB urged Congress to include the housing tax incentives in H.R.8, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.  The final bill, which averted damaging tax hikes and spending reductions that would have taken effect on Jan 1, includes the following energy-efficiency tax credits:  Existing Home Retrofit Tax Credit (25C) and the New Energy Efficient Home Tax Credit (45L).  Another important energy-efficiency housing tax credit is the Residential Energy Efficient Property or 25D credit.  The 25D credit, which rewards home owners for installing solar panels, geothermal heat pumps, small wind turbines and fuel cells, can be used in existing homes and new construction.  It provides a 30% tax credit for investments in properties that generate renewable energy, and the tax credit is available through the end of 2016.

As of January 14, 2015, employers that fall under the jurisdiction of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) are required to report all work-related fatalities within eight hours, and all work-related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding about the incident.  Businesses in a state with a state-run OSHA program should contact their state plan for the implementation date, though they are encouraged to also comply by January 1, 2015.  Employers have three options for reporting to OSHA.  They can call the nearest area office during normal business hours, call the 24-hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (1-800-321-6742) or they can report online at osha.gov/report_online/.  For more information and resources on the new requirements visit osha.gov/recordkeeping.
