If your voice says no to another home-buyer tax, the Ontario Real Estate Association wants you to use it to tell your local provincial candidates.
The Ontario Election is June 7 and housing affordability is a critical issue. (See the political leaders' housing affordability plans here.)
Last week, York Region councillors demanded that the province give them municipal land transfer tax (MLTT) powers. As such, a second land transfer tax in York Region would add over $15,000 to an average-priced home.
OREA warns if the MLTT spreads to York Region, you can be certain that it’s coming to a community near you next.
OREA says, "Keeping the dream of home-ownership alive in our province starts with beating back the MLTT. Be part of the movement to protect the
#HomeOwnershipDream and take action today."
