    The city does not allow home purchases by those who haven't paid social-security or income taxes for five consecutive years. Some had called for this requirement be reduced to three years but ...The Wall Street Journal

    Dear all,

    Could you please tell me whether there is a "to" before "be reduced" left out? Thanks.

    Yes, it appears that 'to' was left out by mistake. :)
