Added November 3, 2015:

(a) After January 1, 2016, no law may be enacted that imposes a transfer tax on a transaction that conveys fee simple title to real property.

(b) This section does not prohibit: (1) the imposition of a general business tax measured by business activity; (2) the imposition of a tax on the production of minerals; (3) the imposition of a tax on the issuance of title insurance; or (4) the change of a rate of a tax in existence on January 1, 2016.

Editor Comments

It is unclear why the Legislature numbered this new section 29, instead of the next-available 25.
