Yet another reason to remove these crazy liberals from office. Fellow Americans...how much MORE are you willing to give up of your freedoms!? Just a little bit here, just a little there...

Before you know it...one day you will wake up and realize the government has complete control over everything you do, and the right to TAX you on anything they want.

Remember the Beatles song Taxman? Soon they will find a way to tax the air you breathe.Instead of calling it a tax, it will be a user fee.It will be like the selling of air rights.

Homeowners are the last source of tax revenue for completely failed public officials at the local, state and national level. The homeowner is already tax up to his or her eyeballs.

These charlatans should end the taxing of homeowners by the Zoo Museum district-that's $50 million in the County and more than $20 million in the City. Let citizens keep that money.

County gov. should flat out stop paying off ballpark bonds for failure to perform-at least the first 1/2rd of Ballpark Village, and REDUCE the hotel/motel tax which is regressive.

And none of them knows how to grow the economy.
Economic growth creates more tax revenue unless
it is given away.

Tea party nut here we go again. You are making this political and yet this is being done by the president of the Missouri realtors association. The realtors group decided to push to have this amendment to make sure that they could not add this tax. There is not a current amendment to add this tax and they want to make sure that the voters make it so that anyone from any party can not add it later. Oh also you pick on Liberals and Robin C. helped make sure that this was added to the November election ballot. So read the facts before you speeww lies. And now lets all go vote yes on Amendment 3.

Huh? This is not even on the books and to date and your talking about liberals? I agree, this should not be imposed and it's a good move on the realtors association to proactively block it. However, to blame liberals for something that has not even happened yet? Both parties have done a great job NOT doing what's best for this country.
Go sit down, smoke a cigarette, belt down a shot of Jack and relax. Whatever you do, please let us know before you go ballistic, take hostages and threaten to kill your family because of the Presidents policies (like that guy in Fairview Heights). I'd like to see it unfold on Fox news.

How about setting a max cap to realtors' commission rate too?

"They argue you're already paying property taxes, so such a transfer tax is a sort of double jeopardy, taxing you twice for the same thing."
.
The same thing with personal property taxes on cars. You pay sales tax on the purchase, why should we have to pay a yearly tax?
.
Just more money for the idiots to waste.

How about enacting a law to make it illegal to have to vote Yes when we really mean NO?????

It is imperative that homeowners get to the polls on this issue. Missouri is one of few states that does not have a transfer tax and in today's economic climate, WE DO NOT WANT ONE EITHER! On Amendment 3 VOTE YES TO SAY NO to real estate transfer tax.

There is no question but that government must find new revenue sources. Real estate is an untapped gold mine for the tax man. Tax the sale or tax the deed of trust or tax both... without a taxpayer defense amendment it is only a matter of time.(Remember tax stamps on deeds in the 60's?)

I have been told there is now a sales tax charged on abstracts of title in New York State. So it has already begun.

It is the responsibility of Secretary of State Robyn Carnahan to write the confusing wording on this bill. She certainly cannot be trusted to be our Senator.

Don't be confused, VOTERS HAVE TO VOTE YES on the amendment to say NO to the possibility of transfer tax! Please vote! Cheryl.

I said no to this transfer taxes on property sales. Yes, this is a sort of double jeopardy taxing.

I just did a little math on this. a 200000 home will cost you an extra 8k with a 4% sales tax added. Have they lost thier damn minds???
