Protect Our Homes

WHAT IT WOULD DO: Amends the Arizona Constitution to prevent the creation of a “real-estate transfer tax” (which is essentially a sales tax) on the purchase of a home or other real estate. Arizona doesn’t have a real-estate transfer tax yet, but there’s been talk of one in the past. Realtors want to shut that down now.

SUPPORTERS SAY: No new taxes! Especially on real estate!

OPPONENTS SAY: Other states have taxes like this and we need to a tax system that’s in line with the modern economy.
