Exemptions from the Realty Transfer Fee are found in N.J.S.A. 46:15-10. 3. LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE “Legal representative” is to be interpreted broadly to include any person actively and responsibly participating in the transaction, such as, but not limited to: an attorney representing one of the parties; a closing officer of a title company or lending institution participating in the transaction; a holder of power of attorney from grantor or grantee. 4. OFFICER OF CORPORATE GRANTEE/OFFICER OF TITLE COMPANY OR LENDING INSTITUTION Where a deponent is an officer of corporate grantee, state the name of corporation and officer’s title or where a deponent is a closing officer of a title company or lending institution participating in the transaction, state the name of the company or institution and officer’s title. 5. CONSIDERATION “Consideration” means in the case of any deed, the actual amount of money and the monetary value of any other thing of value constituting the entire compensation paid or to be paid for the transfer of title to the lands, tenements or other realty, including the remaining amount of any prior mortgage to which the transfer is subject or which is assumed and agreed to be paid by the grantee and any other lien or encumbrance not paid, satisfied or removed in connection with the transfer of title. 6.

The Table is used in the calculation and apportionment of distributions pursuant to the State School Aid Act of 1954. 7. EQUALIZED VALUE “Equalized Value” means the assessed value of the property in the year that the transfer is made, divided by the Director’s Ratio. The Table of Equalized Valuations is promulgated annually on or before October 1 in each year pursuant to N.J.S.A. 54:1-35.1. Example: Assessed value = $1,000,000; Director’s Ratio = 80%. $1,000,000 ÷ .80 = $1,250,000. If Director’s Ratio is less than 100%, the equalized valuation will be an amount greater than the assessed value, if Director’s Ratio is in excess of 100% the assessed value will be equal to the equalized value. 8.
