The Roundtable and 13 other national real estate organizations sent a letter to members of the House Ways and Means Committee about the adverse impact that recently introduced carried interest legislation (H.R. 1735) would have on U.S. real estate and entrepreneurial risk taking.

The letter notes how the Carried Interest Fairness Act (H.R. 1735) would result in a huge tax increase on Americans who use partnerships in businesses of all types and sizes – and would be particularly harmful to the nearly 8 million partners in U.S. real estate partnerships.
