Property taxes can be a large and complex state and local tax burden for businesses. In addition to annual property taxes, many states, counties and cities assess transfer taxes – including documentary stamp tax, real estate excise tax and realty transfer tax, which can be assessed as high as 3% to 4% of a property’s sales price.
