What properties are affected by the change?

The changes apply only to real property located in any city in New York having a population of one million or more. Currently, these changes would only apply to the five boroughs of New York City.

Transfer Tax Increase:
Residential Properties of $3 Million or More
Other Properties of $2 Million or More

The first change is to the New York State transfer tax provided for in Section 1402 of the Tax Law. This is a change to the basic transfer tax of two dollars per five hundred dollars of consideration.

As of July 1, 2019, an additional transfer tax of one dollar and twenty-five cents for each five hundred dollars of consideration will be added to the conveyance of residential property where the consideration is three million dollars or more and to any other property where the consideration is two million dollars or more.

For purposes of this section residential real property is “any premises that is or may be used in whole or in part as a personal residence, and shall include a one, two, or three-family house, an individual condominium unit, or a cooperative apartment unit.”

Mansion Tax- New Supplement- Read and Weep!

The second change adds a new Section 1402-B to the Tax Law. This provides for a new tax that is supplemental to the existing “Mansion Tax” on residential real property (Tax Law 1402-A). Please Note that the existing statewide Mansion Tax on residential properties of $1 million or more remains in effect. The 1402-B tax, as set forth below, is on top of the existing Mansion Tax. The new supplemental tax applies only to residential property in a city with a population of one million or more when the consideration is two million dollars or more (currently New York City only). Residential property is again defined as “any premises that is or may be used in whole or in part as a personal residence, and shall include a one, two, or three-family house, an individual condominium unit, or a cooperative apartment unit.”
Tax Rate on the new supplemental tax is charged on a graduated scale based on consideration as follows:
$2 million but less than $3 million
$3 million but less than $5 million
$5 million but less than $10 million
$10 million but less than $15 million
$15 million but less than $20 million
$20 million but less than $25 million
$25 million and up
 
 
charge ¼ of 1%
charge ½ of 1%
charge 1 ¼%
charge 2 ¼%
charge 2 ½%
charge 2 ¾%
charge 2.9%
