Nick Garvin presented at the 4th Australian Workshop on Public Finance.

e61 Research Manager Nick Garvin presented updated research on the effects of stamp duty, at the workshop hosted by the Tax and Transfer Institute at Australian National University.

Nick and his coauthors study these effects with microdata on housing transactions and changes of address, and analyse responses to a large stamp duty change in Queensland in 2011. They find that the stamp duty rise had large negative effects on the numbers of purchases and moves, but there was no detectable effect on house prices.
