The sale of any one or two-family residential premises which are owned and occupied by a senior citizen, blind person, or disabled person who is the seller in such transaction; provided, however, that except in the instance of a husband and wife/partners in a civil union couple, no exemption shall be allowed if the property being sold is owned as joint tenants and one or more of the owners is not a senior citizen, blind person, or disabled person; 2. The sale of Low and Moderate Income Housing conforming to the requirements as established by this Act. For the purposes of this Act, the following definitions shall apply: “Blind person” means a person whose vision in his better eye with proper correction does not exceed 20/200 as measured by the Snellen chart or a person who has a field defect in his better eye with proper correction in which the peripheral field has contracted to such an extent that the widest diameter of visual field subtends an angular distance no greater than 20º. “Disabled person” means any resident of this State who is permanently and totally disabled, unable to engage in gainful employment, and receiving disability benefits or any other compensation under any federal or State law. “Senior citizen” means any resident of this State of the age of 62 or over. “Low and Moderate Income Housing” means any residential premises, or part thereof, affordable according to Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development or other recognized standards for home ownership and rental costs occupied or reserved for occupancy by households with a gross income equal to 80% or less of the median gross household income for households of the same size within the housing region in which the housing is located, but shall include only those residential premises subject to resale controls pursuant to contractual guarantees. “Resident of the State of New Jersey” means any claimant who is legally domiciled in this State when the transfer of the subject property is made.

Proofs of domicile include a New Jersey voter registration, motor vehicle registration and driver’s license, and resident tax return filing. 10. TRANSFERS OF NEW CONSTRUCTION “New construction” means any conveyance or transfer of property upon which there is an entirely new improvement not previously occupied or used for any purpose. On transfers of new construction, the words “NEW CONSTRUCTION” shall be printed clearly at the top of the first page of the deed, and an Affidavit by the grantor stating that the transfer is of property upon which there is new construction shall be appended to the deed. 11. REALTY TRANSFER FEE IS A FEE IN ADDITION TO OTHER RECORDING FEES The county recording officer is required to collect the Realty Transfer Fee at the time the deed is offered for recording/transfer. 12. PENALTY FOR WILLFUL FALSIFICATION OF CONSIDERATION AND TRANSFERS OF NEW CONSTRUCTION Any person who knowingly falsifies the consideration recited in a deed or in the proof or acknowledgement of the execution of a deed or in an affidavit annexed to a deed declaring the consideration therefor or a declaration in an affidavit that a transfer is exempt from recording fee is guilty of a crime of the fourth degree (Chapter 308, P.L. 1991, effective June 1, 1992). Grantors conveying title of new construction who fail to subscribe and append to the deed an affidavit to that effect in accordance with the provisions of subsection c. of section 2 of Chapter 49, P.L. 1968 (C.46:15-6) is guilty of a disorderly persons offense. The Division of Taxation is entitled to review the Fees collected pursuant to the State Uniform Procedure Law. The Director of the Division of Taxation is authorized to make deficiency assessments to taxpayers who have, intentionally or mistakenly, underestimated the consideration or sales price of properties on the Affidavit of Consideration attached to deeds and upon which the Realty Transfer Fee is based. 13.
