Tax On Str Profits

Recommended Posts

How about a retrospective tax on STR profits? STRs are selfishly failing to reinvest their gains into the housing market - increasing the chances of a fall that hurts the economy. Should a responsible government institute a retrospective wind-fall tax on STR profits? It would simultaneously help reduce the deficit and prop up house prices... for example the tax could hit if you don't buy a house within 24 months of selling - levy a tax of 40% on all of the profits of the housing transactions that led to the STR profit! That would help get things moving!
