The transfer tax is the $4.00 per $1,000. So take the selling price and divide by $1,000. then times by $4.00. That gives you the transfer amount.
Your attorney should be able to review all of the closing costs with you, recording fees, etc.

Transfer rate is $4 per $1000 on the sale price. It is quite direct, but your attorney should be able to verify this information.
