Real Estate Transfer Tax Data

The Real Estate Transfer Tax (RETT) was enacted in 1967. The tax is assessed on both the buyer and seller upon the transfer, sale or granting of real property or an interest in real property. In most instances, the tax is paid to the register of deeds in the county where the property is located and is evidenced by stamps affixed to the deed when the deed is recorded.
