575.10 Mere change of identity.
Tax Law, ยง 1405(b)(6)
To the extent that a conveyance effectuates a mere change of identity or form of ownership or organization and there is no change in beneficial ownership, the real estate transfer tax does not apply. Examples of transactions where the issue of change in beneficial ownership would arise include the following:
(a) the conveyance by tenants-in-common of their interest in real property to a partnership or a corporation, the partnership or corporation interests being in the same pro rata shares as the tenants-in-common held prior to conveyance. Such conveyance is not taxable as there is no change in beneficial ownership;
(b) the conveyance by a corporation to its shareholders who will hold the real property as tenants-in-common in the same pro rata share as they own the corporation. Such conveyance is not taxable as there is no change in beneficial ownership;
(c) the conveyance by a corporation to its wholly-owned subsidiary, from a wholly-owned subsidiary to its parent, or from one wholly-owned subsidiary to another. Such conveyance is not taxable to the extent that there is no change in beneficial ownership;
(d) the conveyance by a person to a partnership in exchange for an interest in the partnership. Such conveyance is not taxable to the extent of the grantor's interest in the partnership.
