PROPERTY TRANSFER TAX - WHAT A BURDEN FOR BUYERS!!!

This tax has become such a cash cow for the government - the formula was created back in 1987, when homes were a fraction of the cost compared to now. The formula is 1% on the first 200k, and 2% on the balance - a $700,000 house would bring the government $12,000 revenue. You, the buyer, need to have this cash on hand...in addition to any other closing costs for the purchase. The government will earn this revenue EVERY TIME the house sells.

Now imagine you live in a 700k home but want to move your family to a new area...maybe because of job change, schools for the kids, or maybe you just need more space for your growing family. You've already paid the tax when you purchased the home the FIRST TIME, and you're going to pay it again when you purchase the NEXT home!!

Let's say you upgrade to a $1,000,000 home - the government is getting $18,000 on your new purchase, and getting $12,000 from the people who purchased your old home....a total of $30,000 REVENUE!!!

I don't think I'm alone with the feeling that this formula NEEDS TO CHANGE!! Or maybe current homeowners could receive a credit for when they purchase the next home. For instance, if you SELL a $700,000 home and upgrade to a $1,000,000 home you'd only pay tax on the difference....reducing the tax burden from $18k on the new purchase to a more reasonable $4k (using current formula but on a reduced $300k value).

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS???
