State lawmakers are seeking to amend the tax code so that businesses which received PPP loans are no longer able to deduct the income. SB 104 will allow PPP money to be taxed. This is a significant change to the original intent of the loan program. As a result, NCR is working with a coalition to prevent this legislation from passing.
Field Advocacy Report
Government Affairs Directors are busy assisting with local advocacy efforts.

- REALTORS® and Builders in Forsyth County have been experiencing significant delays in building inspections due to understaffing in the inspections department. Members united to advocate for a graduated pay scale to incentivize employee retention and reduce the backlog of inspections. This change, approved by the City Council last Monday, will make Forsyth County more competitive place for development.
