Abstract: The Federal Individual Income Tax provides significant incentives to those who choose to own their home. This thesis attempts to analyze the current treatment of homeowners. First, it examines the four major provisions that provide benefits to those who own; the deduction of mortgage interest, the deduction of property taxes, exclusion of imputed rental income and exemption of most capital gain. This examination includes how they work, but concentrates on the equity between different groups. Second, this thesis addresses the commonly cited justifications for the favorable treatment of homeowners. Finally, it looks at the incentives as a whole, analyzing their structure and propose changes for the future. The final conclusion is that our treatment towards homeowners is unfair, inefficient and should be eliminated, despite its overwhelming popularity.
