Regarding people believe that the cost of holding real estate is low, Commissioner You of DOF and Director Ni of Taipei City Revenue Service also added that the ratio of Self-financing Resources to the total annual revenue in Taipei City is the highest in the country at 64%, and according to the statistics of low-use (electricity consumption) houses announced by the Ministry of the Interior, the ratio of vacant houses of Taipei City is the lowest in the country, which shows that under the current tax system, the housing in Taipei City is used most effectively.
