Housing Report Reproaches Stamp Duty And Tax Regulations

Stamp DutyA top Housing Policy Report has reproached Stamp Duty and present taxation standards followed by the government, informs an article on the online magazine Your Investment Property.

The Housing Report further asserts that all the rules of taxation are heavily inclined towards property investment at the moment and is further widening the gulf between rich investors and cash-strapped first home buyers.

While the government merrily provides $40 billion in tax concessions to next-home buyers, owner-occupiers and investors, it continues to make life difficult for first home buyers.
