 There is a new law the will cost you selling your home in VA a lot more than it used to.  Below is a link to sign an on-line petition to vote against it.

“The new law authorized the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) to raise the tax from .10 cents/$100 to .50 cents/$100 or $5.00 per $1,000 of a home’s sales price, bringing the tax on a $600,000 home in Northern Virginia from $600 to $3,000 when property owners sell their home.”

I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU to read this petition and click on the on-line link to be sent to our representatives for the purpose removing this tax.
