Give stamp duty to councils and take pressure off ratepayers

IT'S time stamp duty from the sale of houses was given to councils, not state governments.

this would ease the pressure on rate payers everywhere in the state.

Why should money from local areas, collected from stamp duty, go to the state government?

This money should be given to councils to help pay for local infrastructure, and help take the burden off ratepayers.
