Voters Overwhelmingly Pass Amendment #1!

On November 19th, 2011, Louisiana voters passed Constitutional Amendment #1 in a landslide victory with 81% of the vote!

The Louisiana REALTORS® Association strongly supported Amendment #1, which prohibits any new real estate transfer taxes in the state.

The passage of Amendment #1 on November 19 will...

  • Protect your home from double taxation. Most homeowners in Louisiana already pay property taxes. Transfer taxes are simply another tax on the same piece of property.
  • Keep Louisiana free from additional taxes, especially those that unfairly target homeowners and homebuyers.

This is an extremely positive development for residential and commercial consumers of real estate - and good for the overall real estate market and economy in Louisiana.

Thanks to all volunteers statewide for helping in the effort to pass this important measure!
