Figures released yesterday reveal the stamp duty rip-off increased by $800 million last year.
When Labor took power 11 years ago the annual tax was worth $1 billion.
REIV spokesman Robert Larocca said it was time stamp duty tax was cut.
“This is not about giving away future increases. It is about making sure Victorians get a fair go in buying a house,” he said.

Mick Gatto and Jerry Lewis. Strange bedfellows, no? Not when it comes to their big hearts for supporting Muscular Dystrophy.
In speaking to the Herald Sun recently, Lewis remarked “I’m telling you, whatever Mick was, whatever Mick is, I’ve never in my 84 years been as fortunate to get someone that lets me connect to them (like Mick does),” he said. “He’s some kind of man. He’s wonderful to me and he’s going to mean that I’ll probably be able to raise $50 million in one telethon here.”
Mick has previously run a charity benefit event for recovery from the Black Saturday Bush Fires. On Tuesday 22nd July Gatto ran a charity benefit at Docklands which was a total sell out at $1000.00 a head. Jerry has also attended a Etihad stadium game of Fremantle versus Carlton – donning the blue colors.
Gatto is helping Lewis arrange a telephon fund raising event to assist in his role as the ambassador for Muscular Dystrophy.
