IRS Guidance Out on 20% Business Income Deduction

The Internal Revenue Service issued proposed regulations for a new provision allowing many owners of sole proprietorships, partnerships, trusts and S corporations to deduct 20 percent of their qualified business income. The new qualified business income deduction is available for tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2017. Taxpayers can claim it for the first time on the 2018 federal income tax return they file next year.


2018 Professional Standards Webinar

2018 Professional Standards Webinar! Watch Now

In effort to make this information accessible at all times, Maryland REALTORS® made a webinar for the Professional Standards Training. This video is a resource for all associations. We are building a video library as we recognize that all associations do not receive Professional Standards cases regularly and may need to reference this material at any time.


Flood Insurance Call for Action and Update

UPDATE!  The U.S. Senate just passed an extension of the National Flood Insurance Program and the NAR CFA is now closed.  Congratulations Marylanders for achieving and over 22% response rate!  Many thanks to all who took action -- your efforts helped ensure that the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) did not lapse. Congress received over 422,000 emails (House and Senate messages) in support of extending NFIP and that effort paid off!  The bill, which cleared the House last week, is expected to be signed into law shortly (before tonight’s midnight deadline).  More details to follow soon.






Smoke Alarm Laws

Practical considerations for you and your clients. A seller who fails to comply with the law is subject to a fine, imprisonment, or both. A listing agent representing a seller who is in violation of the law must disclose to prospective buyers that the seller is not in compliance. If a buyer’s agent is aware that the seller is not in compliance with the law, the buyer’s agent must disclose this fact to his or her buyer client.
