Legislation

REALTORS® are hard at work every day protecting your interests at the State Capitol. Take a detailed look at this year’s priority legislation, or visit the full legislative tracking sheet below.

CAR Bill Sheet

First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account

In 2016, CAR championed legislation that creates first-time homebuyer savings accounts effective upon the start of the 2017 tax year. A First-time Homebuyer Savings Account (FHSA) allows any Coloradan to set aside up to $50,000 toward the costs of purchasing a new home. The earnings on those funds — interest and capital gains — are free from Colorado state taxes forever. FHSAs are a great way for future homeowners to start saving early for the costs of buying a home. These accounts will be simple and easy to set up.
