RE:
New Transfer Tax Regulations

Dear Associates:

Recently, the Department of Revenue amended its regulations, 61 Pa. Code Chapter 91, to address numerous legislative changes and to bring the regulatory provisions into conformity with Departmental policy. The amendments to the regulations can be found at our website (http://stewarteasternpa.com) under "Online Resources" tab.

The Department is not re-publishing the booklet Rev-1250 EX+ (4-95). Therefore, we have put the regulations into a booklet form incorporating the amendments, for your quick reference. If you wish to obtain a copy of this booklet, please go to our website at http://stewarteasternpa.com for a copy in Word format.
