GIFTS OF PROPERTY TRANSFERS TO A SPOUSE OR FAMILY MEMBER
Many people have a desire to gift a property interest to a spouse, family member, or friend. Gifting a property interest in property is also called a “Quit Claim Deed”. We also will transfer property interest into a Living Trust or LLC. Transferring a property interest into a Trust is often called a “Quit Claim Deed in Trust” or “Deed in Trust”. Sean Robertson and Gateville Law Firm assist home owners and real estate owners with regards to their Quit Claim Deed and Property Transfer Needs.
Generally, gifting real estate interests is considered a non-taxable event. According to Illinois real estate transfer laws, gifting real estate interests in a property is a non-taxable event. A Quit Claim Deed should not trigger real estate taxation if it is a gift without strings attached. To properly record a Quit Claim Deed, a real estate transfer stamp may be required from a person’s local municipality. For example, Plainfield residents that have Joliet water must secure a real estate transfer stamp from the City of Joliet. This stamp is free, but one cannot record their quit claim deed unless their City (if it is applicable) provides a real estate transfer stamp. Typically, the City of Joliet will give you a real estate transfer stamp on the condition that you do not owe the City of Joliet any money.
