Advocacy

Legislative Toolkit

Kentucky REALTORS® supports measures that promote or enable home ownership and opposes measures that interfere with it.

Therefore, we have put together a Legislative Toolkit, designed to help REALTORS® understand the political framework and provide the resources necessary to get involved in the process.  

By becoming an active participant in politics, REALTORS® help strengthen the influence real estate has with our elected leadership.

Tax reform in a special session

The legislature did not address tax reform this session. Governor Bevin and legislative leaders have repeatedly said that everything is on the table and to expect a special session later this year. Throughout the session, groups representing every aspect of our economy reached out to elected officials defending their preferred tax credit, deduction and program.

In the near future, Governor Bevin will produce his version of tax reform and promote it to the state legislature and the public in preparation for the special session. Kentucky REALTORS® will remain engaged on the important issue to defend homeownership and encourage economic growth.
