Tax on Value of Expensive Homes

There have been votes in Parliament on the introduction of a new property tax on expensive homes. Such a tax, popularly dubbed a "mansion tax", would introduce a requirement for those with residential properties worth over a certain amount to pay a fraction of the property's value (or a fraction of its value over a certain amount) to the Government each year.
