Qld Greens propose house vacancy tax

Brisbane home owners who deliberately leave properties vacant will be taxed to fund affordable housing for the homeless under a Queensland Greens proposal.

A five per cent annual tax would raise $800 million over five years to help build one million affordable homes for homeless people.

"The vacancy tax will be targeted at a small number of wealthy investors who deliberately leave properties empty, with a generous list of exemptions to include properties on the rental market, second homes for workers flying into Brisbane, and deceased estates," Greens candidate Kirsten Lovejoy said on Wednesday.
