Double Taxation

n. Property tax which is taken twice in one year for the same purpose. This practice is generally prohibited in situations such as a transfer of property whose tax is imposed on a new owner even though it has been taxed once before. However, if all of a jurisdiction's properties are taxed twice in the same year, the practice is legal since it is not discriminatory or unfair.
