Default Freddy / Fannie Disclosure

Question...

Fannie and Freddy are now property of the taxpayer. Appraisers sometimes make enough money to pay taxes...so don't we own a piece of Fannie and freddy?

And if we do, shouldn't we state in our reports that as tax paying citizens the appraiser owns a piece of an intended user...

Is that a conflict of interest? just a question...

I suggest you use the same language you already put in your eminent domain, IRS, and other work to be used by a government agency. Of course you could avoid all this conflict by becoming a non-taxpaying citizen.

Others might call it the path to a political appointment.

Does this mean we should not pay our taxes in order to comply with USPAP or the HVCC???
