the consideration where the parties convey to one of them is generally one-half the fair market value.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>If there is a mortgage on the property, the

otherwise.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>However, many couples are purchasing property before they are married.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>Unless taken as joint

The exemptions include leases that would ordinarily be taxable, and assignments of leases to companies moving to New York.&nbsp; To be eligible for the exemption, the business must be located in a tax-free area and be approved to participate in the START-UP NY program.&nbsp; To claim the exemption when recording a lease, a memo of lease, or an assignment of lease the parties must file a new form, the TP584-SNY.&nbsp; The link to the form is:</p> <p><a href="http://www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/current_forms/property/tp584sny.pdf">http://www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/current_forms/property/tp584sny.pdf</a>&nbsp;</p> <p>If the property is located in the four boroughs of the City of New York subject to ACRIS filing, complete the following steps to prepare the forms:</p> <p>On the RPT, in the General information section, choose "A grant or assignment of a leasehold interest in a tax-free NY area," and In Schedule 2, Computation of Tax, check box 4a&nbsp;"Circumsatances of this transfer require an alternate tax rate," and choose 0%.&nbsp;</p> <p>On the TP 584, on the condition of conveyances tab, select p, "Conveyance for which exemtion from transfer tax is claimed," and on Schedule B, Part III, check one of the two new boxes for start-up leases - either leasehold grant, or leasehold assignment.&nbsp; The new form will be generated.</p> https://seaporttitle.com/blogs/Real Estate News/ Recordings <p><strong>New York City</strong> has once again changed some of the rules with respect to preparing ACRIS forms.&nbsp; This time, estates and trusts are the primary victims.</p> <p>1.&nbsp; As before, both the trust or estate must be listed together with the corresponding executors ot trustees, which go in as "other."&nbsp; Now, however, you can no longer use 9s or 0s for the EINs of the fiduciary.&nbsp; The EIN for the estate or trust must be used for them as well.&nbsp; This also applies in other cases where you have a decedent.&nbsp; If a surviving tenant by the entirety, a joint tenant, or heirs at law are conveying, the decedent must be listed as "other" and the decedent's social security number must be used.&nbsp; If for some reason it is not availabe, the survivor's social can be used.</p> <p>2.&nbsp;
