Survey: should larger homebuilders also extend their tax loss carryback?

A major issue recently splitting the NAHB, the national lobbying organization for home builders, was whether it made sense to extend the tax loss carryback from 2 to 5 years for companies of all sizes. Smaller builders complained that it would encourage larger competitors to dump their under-water land holdings at fire-sale prices in order to reap the tax benefits, whereas the larger builders contended that the NAHB should also represent their interests.

So what do you think? BigBuilderOnline.com has a survey, with results to be published next week.

You can take that survey here.
