Once again, City of Pittsburgh council members are considering increasing the realty transfer tax, the highest in Western Pennsylvania, to fund an affordable housing trust. We support the affordable housing efforts, however, increasing the transfer tax makes the housing within city limits defeats the initiative.
We must urge the city council to find alternative funding. Visit the Voter Voice section for details.
Thank you to our members for contributing to R-PAC!
Act 133 of 2016 was signed by Governor Tom Wolfe in December and enacted as of January 2.
RAMP members have been working to avoid realty transfer tax increase.
