February 21, 2017: A tax reform plan by the House Ways & Means Committee would eliminate the property tax deduction, double the standard deduction, and lower tax rates.

The video also looks at the penalties imposed on two real estate brokerages for marketing service agreements they entered into with a lender. The federal government says the agreements were unlawful referral-fee arrangements.
