BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- Brunswick county residents could soon be hit with another tax. County commissioners are considering putting a land transfer tax on the November ballot. The 0.4 percent tax would be levied on folks selling homes or land in Brunswick County. For instance, someone who sold a $200,000 house would have to pay the county $800 in taxes. The tax would generate an estimated $14 million a year -- money commissioners could use for things like road improvements. Next week commissioners are expected to discuss whether to put the land transfer tax on the ballot.
