I dont know how it is where you are, but here the Land Transfer Tax is a huge issue! Knowing that this is a hot button issue within my area, I went to our last county commissioners meeting where this issue was on the agenda to be addressed. One commissioner out of the whole panel spoke intellegently and felt the Land Transfer Tax to be wrong, very wrong, and I AGREE! Do you? One of the commissioners was brazen enough, in packed room of citizens, to say, "well if they (buyers) can't afford this tax when they purchase a home then they can't afford to buy the home in the first place,".....and shouldn't be buying it is basically the gist of his continued ignorance.
If you are yet to face this problem child, you probably soon will be! If it is already bombarding your area, what aare your thoughts on the issue? I'd love to hear.
Check out the above website and send it to EVERYONE you know who opposes this tax!
