Why did the City implement the Vacant Home Tax?

The Vacant Home Tax aims to increase the housing supply by discouraging owners from leaving their residential properties unoccupied and instead making them available for rent or for sale. Homeowners who choose to keep their properties vacant will be subject to this tax. Revenues collected from the Vacant Home Tax will be allocated towards affordable housing initiatives, including the Multi-Unit Residential Acquisition program.
