Bob’s Political Opinions

A Tax on Rents Collected

I suggest that in order to pay for more affordable housing, there be a tax on rents collected by landlords This tax should probably be a small percentage of the rent collected and the taxes collected should go to the Seattle Housing Authority to be used for building affordable housing units and/or to help low-income people with their rent.

The advantage of this rent is that, since it is a percentage of rent collected, the higher the rent the greater the tax revenue. As rents go up, so does the tax collected and the more will be available to help those whose income is too low to pay rent.
