New Jersey transfer taxes for home buyers and sellers

The State of New Jersey imposes a Realty Transfer Fee (RTF) on the seller whenever there is a transfer of title by deed. The fee is based on the sales price of the property, and the seller is required to pay the fee at the time of closing. (No RTF is owed on non-deed transfers of title for a house.) Note: The State of New Jersey imposes an additional transfer fee of 1% of the sales price on buyers of certain real property when the purchase price exceeds $1 million. This fee is separate from a Controlling Interest Transfer Tax (CITT), which applies only to certain transfers of controlling interest in entities possessing commercial properties. You can find more information on the CITT and non-deed transfers of title here. Read more
