Transfer Tax Forms


If you pass the right to property to another individual or business, you have to pay transfer taxes, which include both gift and estate ones. The type of taxes is determined according to property you transfer, i.e. they are imposed at the federal, state and local levels. Such units as legal deeds, certificates and titles to property being transferred are subject to taxation by states and local municipalities. However, note that the IRS imposes taxes on the property value.

How to Prepare Your Transfer Tax Return

In case you pass title to some kind of property or entity to another person, you have to pay a transaction fee, i.e. transfer tax. This kind of fee is usually determined according to the type of property you transfer, it is imposed where there is a set requirement for transfer registration, at the federal, state and local levels. However, when states and local municipalities tax the transfer of certificates and rights to property, the Internal Revenue Service charges the fee for the value of the property itself.

Sometimes it is required to confirm a transaction by a notary.

There are several forms necessary for organizing your transfer tax return.
