House to examine the 'third rail' of taxes: home mortgage interest deduction

"Homeownership is an integral part of the American Dream, and the tax code has long provided a variety of incentives to make it easier for families to buy and own a home," Camp said when the hearing was announced. "Before considering any proposal, the Committee must better understand how tax reform might affect the housing sector and this hearing is an opportunity to hear directly from both academic experts and industry stakeholders."
