Transfer Tax & Conveyance Fee Calculator
Throughout Ohio there is a Transfer Tax and Conveyance fee on real property and manufactured homes. In Franklin County that fee is $3 per every $1,000 of the sale price with a $3 minimum and a $0.50 per parcel transfer tax. This includes the $1 per $1,000 fee set by the state and the $2 per $1,000 set by the Franklin County Board of Commissioners who last updated the fee in August 2019. When the grantor receives the homestead property tax exemption the fee is reduced to a total of $1 per every $1,000.
Use this calculator to compute Transfer Tax and Conveyance Fees required to transfer ownership of property. If the living grantor or surviving spouse is receiving the homestead reduction check the box for the reduced conveyance fee of $1 per $1,000.
