Oakland ca property transfer tax.

Asked by Dustinho7, Hayward, CA Thu Aug 15, 2013

What are the exemptions of property transfer tax in Oakland, CA? I know there are exemptions if properties were transferred between family members. Property was transferred to my name from my parents, and the city of Oakland is now demanding a transfer tax. Can someone please shed some light on this.

Help the community by answering this question:


Here is a link to a document describing the transactions that are exempt from the City transfer tax. If the property was a gift or cost under a $100, then it may be exempt.

Yes there will most likely be a transfer taxes ....I believe in Oakland it is $15 per $1,000.
