In this paper, the internal rate of return on owner occupied housing is calculated for people in digèrent tax brackets and under a range of values of the relevant parameters. The results show that the internal rates vary a great deal for people in various tax brackets. One must conclude, therefore, that if housing is a merit good, the government must change the present tax laws in order to both eliminate this discrepancy in the internal rates and to increase the internal rate of return for people in the lowest income brackets.
