Ingham County to Begin Collecting Taxes from Mortgage Giants Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae

LANSING, MI – Ingham County officials expect to see tens of thousands of dollars in new revenue as they begin collecting taxes from two of the nation’s largest mortgage lenders.

Ingham County Register of Deeds Cutris Hertel Jr. said he will begin requiring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to pay full transfer taxes on all property transfers in which they are the seller.

The two companies had claimed to be exempt from paying taxes upon filing new deeds, saying they were government entities.

But a recent court ruling found the lenders were private entities, Hertel said.

“We’ve been telling them along the way they need to pay on these, but we haven’t had the legal backing until the Oakland County case was decided,” Hertel said.

In that case, a U.S. District Court judge found the mortgage giants illegally withheld transfer taxes on foreclosed properties from 2006-11.

    So it begins. I have always thought that the TAXES due on every level was going to be the downfall of all of the fraudsters whether they are govermental or private corporations. Look, thats how they brought down the mob in Chicago. They couldn’t get them on anything else (they could but didn’t have the stones) so now it will be on taxes. You heard it here first, LOL. Somethings gotta give, the people can’t take much more and this is an election year. Most people are worried about putting fuel in their cars , food on the table, and a ROOF over their families head’s. So, IRS, do your job or WE THE PEOPLE will get out the pichforks (our voters cards) and do it for you, one way or another!!!!! Oh and Mike, Lisa, April ,and Lynn, I love you. I wish I lived in Florida Lisa, you would, without a doubt have my support. Keep fighting the good fight, you inspire me to do the same. Thank you.
