The Realty Transfer Tax: Council Debates Another Tax Increase

“The same week that the City Controller issued a statement that proceeds from the real estate transfer tax have more than doubled in five years – bringing a ‘significant economic benefit for the city’ – City Council has decided to take on a bill to raise that tax even further.”
