“My experience as a REALTOR® gives me a unique perspective on the challenges this important industry faces year after year,” said Representative Koenig. “I am proud to help write and pass legislation that removes barriers to the men and women of Kentucky that are working to help our citizens realize the American dream of homeownership.”

As part of the award, First Federal Savings Bank of Frankfort makes a charitable donation in the name of the award recipient. This year, Rep. Koenig selected the Salvation Army of Covington.
The award is named in honor of Jess Kinman, a former Kentucky REALTORS® president and REALTOR® of the Year who passed away in 2007, and his wife Carolyn Kinman, who worked for many years at the Legislative Research Commission and General Assembly.

Big Win for REALTORS® on IRS Guidance for 20% Income Deduction

The deduction was part of the big tax reform law Congress passed at the end of last year and it was a huge win for REALTORS®. But it was unclear who would be eligible for the deduction.
