Tell Your Legislator “NO” to a New Tax on Real Estate Services
The housing recovery in Northeast Ohio is under attack. Do you have just a few minutes to help protect the real estate industry? As a REALTOR® your voice needs to be heard and your industry needs to be protected.
As you may know, expansion of the sales tax to include services, such as those in the real estate industry, was included in Governor Kasich’s Budget proposal for Ohio.
CABOR believes that the recent market turnaround could be derailed by the imposition of a sales tax on every aspect of a housing purchase, including commissions, home inspections, appraisals, mortgages, warranties, radon inspections, title searches and more. This also impacts commercial leases.
