New York State Increases Transfer Taxes
SUBMITTED BY Highline Residential on August 27, 2019
While the New York State Transfer Tax applies to all sellers of real estate and cooperative apartments in New York State, the increases recently instituted only apply to transfers within New York City (or any other cities within New York State with populations of 1 million or more). The Additional New York State Transfer Tax, which is known as the "Mansion Tax," applies to purchasers of real estate and cooperative apartments with a sale price of $1 million or more, on a sliding scale.
I can't wait to see what the MTA does with the money to make our lives better!
