David's concerns are shared by virtually all lawyers in this state. The single biggest tax reform WA desperately needs involves the removal of transfer duty on not only changes in business structure, but also real estate. Both duties/taxes are disincentives to growth, entrepreneurship and ultimately, job creation.
