    New Orleans Real Estate Transfer Taxes

    If you’re new to New Orleans, you may be from a city or state that charges a transfer tax to every buyer of a home. We get asked about New Orleans real estate transfer taxes by quite a few new residents, so it’s time to put the question to bed.

    In Orleans Parish, there is a $325 transfer tax associated with every residential real estate closing, including refinances. This tax is paid by the property owner or seller – not the buyer.

    Mark that one off your list of things to budget for when buying New Orleans real estate.
