Call to Defeat New 421a Legislation

We need your help this Monday, March 20th.  Call your representatives to defeat new 421a legislation. You will find their numbers below;  tell them that you are against the proposed renewal of 421a. The 421-a tax break benefits developers of luxury housing and provides little affordable housing.  We object to 421-a causing the loss of government funds that could be better used on housing programs that provide more affordable housing and better maintenance for public housing. We oppose the proposal to extend these 421-a tax breaks to 35 years when previously they were 10 to 25 years. A thorough analysis can be found at ANHD,  Let your representative know that we are asking them to defeat new 421a legislation!  Gov.
