NYSNew York State & New York City Real Property Transfer Tax Exemptions for Certain Governmental & Charitable, Religious, Educational Organizations

 
Everybody hates paying taxes. The payment of Real Estate Transfer Tax is no exception. New York City and New York State imposes Real Estate Transfer Tax on certain types of real property transactions.  The payment of theses taxes are an additional closing cost borne by a Seller and/or a Purchaser of a real property transaction in New York. However, it does happen, on occasion, that one party, (i.e. a Grantor and/or a Grantee), to the real estate transaction is considered exempt from the payment of New York State and/or New York City Real Property Transfer Tax. Specifically, this article will examine those real estate transactions in which the Grantor and/or the Grantee are any one of the following: New York State, or its agencies and political subdivisions, the United States, its agencies and instrumentalities, the United Nations or a Charitable, Religious, Educational Organization.
