Q: If former spouse purchases me out of the marital home, will he need to pay conveyance tax?
Divorce finalized 11.04.14. Former spouse wants quitclaim for $1 and me to sign paper saying he is exempt from paying real estate conveyance tax. Is this okay?
A: The full answer depends on your divorce decree. If you had an attorney for the divorce return to that attorney for your answer. Based solely on the issue of whether there is spousal exemption for conveyance tax you would do better addressing your question under Real Estate rather than the Family Law category.
