Description:
"The Obama Administration proposed a series of reforms in its 2011 budget aimed at increasing the tax burden on upper-income taxpayers. The purpose of these reforms is to increase federal tax receipts and enhance tax progressivity, but may also have the unintended consequence of changing the price of housing. The goal of this paper is to simulate how the Administration’s proposals will affect the equilibrium price of housing in major metropolitan areas."
