    If you can sell it to "landrapists" for millions of dollars, it sounds like they have a more valuable use for the land than you do.  Part of the point of this tax is that it promotes efficient use of land, and selling to "landrapists" is often efficient.

    We can keep green space around in urban areas with the right incentives/zoning, which should be considered in conjunction with such a tax.

    I don't think this tax would be a windfall for wealthy developers--much of the point of it is that it is supposed to be highly progressive.
