Group Ramps Up For Ban On Real Estate Transfer Taxes

A statewide group is trying to head off a tax currently collected in 37 states -- but NOT Missouri.
It's considered a pre-emptive strike against a tax that could hit you if you sell your home.

It's called the real estate transfer tax -- and Missouri realtors call it unfair double taxation. That's why they're getting behind a ballot initiative to change the constitution to bar it from ever coming to Missouri.


The group, "Vote Yes to Stop Double Taxation" needs about 230,000 signatures by May to get the proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot.
