Two New Tax Expenditure Reports Include Evaluation Framework and Federal Home Ownership /Rental Comparison.

GAO report HERE proposes background and framework for evaluating tax expenditures.

Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits article HERE provides data supporting view that gap between FEDERAL home ownership and rental housing tax subsidies has narrowed.  

While narrowed somewhat by a decrease in the national home ownership rate, the federal gap remains large: 5 year expenditures are $972.2 billion for home ownership, $47 billion for rental housing. (Oregon rental/ home ownership gap remains even larger as indicated by my recent post HERE).
