What is Real Property Transfer Tax?

Real Property Transfer Tax (RPTT) is a tax collected when an interest in real property is conveyed pursuant to Nevada revised Statutes 375. This amount is collected in addition to recording fees at the time of recording. A Declaration of Value form (PDF) is required to be completed on which the tax is calculated. The rate is $1.95 for each $500 of value or fraction thereof. The basis for the tax is the actual selling price or the estimated market value. There are several exemptions from the tax. Please see our List of Exemptions to see if one applies.
