The Board of Supes voted last night to put an increased transfer tax measure on the ballot for November. It seems like a timely and fully appropriate idea. The measure would raise the transfer tax on properties over $5 million, of which there are many in the city. Opponents fear it would dissuade large companies from coming to SF because of increased transfer taxes they would have to pay but I highly doubt that. San Francisco is one of the most desirable cities in the world in which to do business. This is simply a smart idea to bring in more revenue without having a drastic impact on working people.
