What is the New Jersey transfer tax?
New Jersey imposes a real estate transfer tax on the sale of
real property. The tax rate is somewhat confusing because the transfer
rate is more expensive when the sales price is greater than $350,000.
The real estate transfer tax is discounted for the purchase and sale of a one- or two-family dwelling owned or occupied by a qualifying senior citizen aged 62 or older, a blind person, or a disabled person who is the seller; or for the purchase and sale of real property that is low and moderate income housing.
