In addition to items directly related to the mortgage market, the housing relief bill offers additional provisions that are quite troubling. Including electronic payment processors and credit card processors are now being required to report transactions to the IRS. This adds another layer of work to any number of enterprises, and can be hard on small businesses and banks alike. Not to mention the new privacy concerns that come with this provision."
