Understanding the Mansion Tax (Measure ULA):
Measure ULA established a new tax structure, known as the mansion tax, to fund affordable housing projects and provide resources to tenants at risk of homelessness. The tax applies to real property transfers within the City of Los Angeles when the consideration or value of the real property interest conveyed exceeds a threshold of five million dollars, or is ten million dollars or greater, respectively. The mansion tax imposes additional rates on top of the existing Base Tax, with the following rate components:
Base Tax rate of 0.45%.
ULA Tax rates of, 1) 4% for properties conveyed over $5,000,000, but under $10,000,000, and 2) 5.5% for properties conveyed at $10,000,000 or more.
The Mansion Tax and Property Values:
The introduction of the mansion tax could have several potential effects on property values in Los Angeles. Some possible outcomes include:

Incentive for affordable housing development.
Shift in buyer preferences.
Limited impact on ultra-luxury properties.
