For the past couple of months, there have been emails circulating in Louisiana about a real estate transfer tax being on the ballot this November. This is old news, folks. This item was up for vote last year (2011) and the people voted to NOT have any new real estate transfer tax in Louisiana. Feel free to visit www.staytaxfree.com for more information. It is where I found the image below.
We had a strong campaign last fall regarding this vote and several Realtors got involved in getting the word out. This is a post I did at the time. We even put out signs on street corners that were telling people to vote yes so that there would be an amendment preventing our state government from enacting a real estate transfer tax in our state. We won. It's done. Time to move on...
