NJ Transfer Tax

New Jersey’s Realty Transfer Fee (RTF) is calculated based on the amount of consideration recited in the deed or the assessed valuation of the property conveyed divided by the Director’s Ratio.

The RTF is usually collected at the real estate closing by the legal representatives or title insurance agents responsible for recording the deed at the county registry offices. For more information, click here.
