Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
353
Title
Reject land transfer duty
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the state budget’s reliance on land transfer duty, also known as stamp duty. Land transfer duty is the most destructive tax.

This duty punishes people for moving house. It also makes housing more expensive and causes approximately one dollar of additional economic damage for each one dollar collected.

Replacing land transfer duty with a less destructive tax or abolishing it entirely would be beneficial to every Victorian.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to reject the impost of land transfer duty.
