Highlights: Baden-Württemberg's Finance Minister Danyal Bayaz (Greens) has rejected the initiative of Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner. "The revenue from the real estate transfer tax collapses precisely because of the reluctance to buy real estate," said Bayaz. Lindner had appealed on Tuesday to the countries to ensure less tax burden when buying real estate. The FDP politician wanted to create the necessary legal leeway for the countries last year, but unfortunately the offer has not yet been accepted.

Baden-Württemberg's Finance Minister Danyal Bayaz (Greens) has rejected the initiative of Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) to abolish the real estate transfer tax for owner-occupied residential property. "The revenue from the real estate transfer tax collapses precisely because of the reluctance to buy real estate," said the Green politician to the "mirror".

Stuttgart - A further weakening of revenues would thus be "not serious from a fiscal policy point of view".

According to the Ministry of Finance, real estate transfer tax revenues of 2023 million euros are planned in Baden-Württemberg in the 2024/861 double budget for the current year.

Lindner had appealed on Tuesday to the countries to ensure less tax burden when buying real estate. "If it is up to me, the real estate transfer tax for owner-occupied housing in the countries should be reduced to zero," said the FDP politician of the German Press Agency. "I wanted to create the necessary legal leeway for the countries last year, but unfortunately the offer has not yet been accepted."

Anyone who wants to build a single-family home or buy an apartment today already has to deal with high interest rates and increased construction costs. However, owner-occupied housing must remain affordable for the broad middle of society, Lindner argued. Dpa
