Tax Closing Costs

Property Taxes

This is the one closing cost that is often prorated between the buyer and seller. If the seller has already paid the annual property taxes, the buyer typically reimburses the seller for the period in which the buyer will be occupying the property. Likewise, if the taxes have not yet been paid, the seller typically reimburses the buyer for the period in which the seller occupied the property.

Recording Fees

Intangible Tax (County Tax)

Intangible Tax is a tax payment on notes secured by a mortgage.  These documents are taxed at a rate of $.20 per $100.
