VOTE TODAY Missouri  Stop the Transfer TaxJefferson City Missour by Ann Hayden

Missouri residents, agents...etc, act NOW to stop the transfer tax. 

What is the transfer tax? 

A real estate transfer tax is a tax paid when you close on a property.  The tax would be a percentage of the total sales price charged/paid and paid by every seller, buyer or both at closing.

The taxes are often paid by people who have lived in their home for years and have already paid thousands of dollars in annual property taxes so transfer taxes are nothing more than double taxation.

Although transfer taxes are not currently imposed in the state of Missouri, the Missouri Constitution does allow state and local government to impose transfer taxes at any time. That being said with the current state of the economy and tax revenues falling,politicians are looking for ways to increase revenues from alternative sources.  Real estate transfer taxes are charged in other states, including Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Arkansas.

Stop Double Taxation and Protect Our Homes.   Vote Yes on Amendment 3!
