You received your answer. In the future if you want to check on "who pays what" there is a link under Buyer Resources on my website you can check out by county and then by city.
All the best to you.
As with all terms of the contract, costs are negotiable, but most people follow the customary practice in Santa Clara Co. and split the San Jose city tax 50/50. There is also a Santa Clara County transfer tax and by custom, the seller alone pays this.
