We are calculating the savings high income earners realize from the mortgage interest deduction compared to the amount of affordable housing assistance in low income neighborhoods. Related to this is a new study we're starting this summer on residential property tax revenue sharing. What would it look like to take a portion of the property tax from high value houses (> $300,000) and put it into an affordable housing production fund?
