County and City Taxes

State law enables counties to levy a tax of $1.10 per $1000 on transfers of real estate within the county. Typically, revenues are shared equally between the county and the city. State law allows cities to adopt separate transfer taxes which are not limited in amount. When a city imposes its own transfer tax, the county is entitled to keep all revenues from its $1.10 per $1000 levy.

County County Transfer Tax Per Thousand City County Transfer Tax Per Thousand
Alameda $1.10 Albany $8.50
Berkeley $15.00
Oakland $15.00
Pidemont $13.00
Contra Costa $1.10 El Cerrito $7.00
Richmond $7.00
