Stamp duty protest in city centre
7:20am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
CAMPAIGNERS were out in Chelmsford city centre on Saturday calling for an end to stamp duty.
Members of the Taxpayers’ Alliance brought their Stamp Out Stamp Duty campaign to Tindal Square where they spoke to nearby estate agents and people looking to buy property.
The group believes the payment which can be in the region of £7,500 for a £250,000 house should be abolished immediately.
Chris Manby, Essex TPA co-ordinator, said: “Buying a house is already far too costly for many hard-working people and stamp duty is just another horrible sting in the tail.
“It makes buying a home even more expensive and puts home ownership further out of reach for young people and families.”
