We are in the process of getting ready to sale our home and move closer into the city. With the Health Care Bill passing last week, there was a lovely tax that was attached to the Health Care Bill. It is called the Real Estate Sales Tax that will go into effect in 2013. Any home that you sale will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax. That is $3,800 for a $100,000 home. You can read more about it at the Spokesman Review.
I know this isn’t a “Thrifty” tip but if you are thinking about selling your home, you might want to go ahead and try to get it on the market and get it sold before the “ball drops” for 2013.
