Since the abolition of the welfare housing distribution policy and the implementation of the monetary reform of the housing system in 1998, there has even been a bubble phenomenon despite the rapid development of the Chinese real estate market. However, considering that the reform of real estate tax will affect the whole system, and there are still various disputes about real estate tax in society, the Chinese government is very slow in real estate tax reform. Given this, under the background that the State Council has been authorized by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to pilot real estate tax reform, it is still necessary to explore the legitimacy of China's real estate tax reform promotion. In general, under the background of solidly promoting common prosperity, resolutely implementing the policy of "housing to live without speculation," and promoting the stable and healthy development of the real estate market, coupled with the fact that the real estate market has already seen a severe bubble phenomenon. China's active promotion of real estate tax reform has a solid theoretical and practical basis and has urgency and feasibility.
