Alpanda and Zubairy (2016) examine the effects of permanent changes to four types of housing-related tax policies in the context of a multi-agent DGE model. They find long-run tax multipliers that range from -2.21 to -1.53. However, we find an error in their codes that has a significant impact on the size of these multipliers. We correct their error and re-simulate their model. The long-run multipliers we find are reduced almost in half---they now range from -1.25 to -0.84. We also compute short-run multipliers at a 20-quarter horizon and find much lower multipliers, ranging between -0.14 to -0.02.
