Breckenridge Transfer Tax

Recently, Breckenridge Associates Real Estate was notified by Land Title Guarantee Company that the Town of Breckenridge and closing companies are running into many situations regarding the conveyance within the town limits that has a transfer tax paid or stamped exempt. This issue is arising on all deeds, even Quit Claim Deeds.

The Town of Breckenridge is going back 6 years, and if there is any deed that is not stamped exempt or the transfer tax was never paid on any type of conveyance, the town is not allowing the title companies to pay the new owner's transfer tax or have the new deed stamped exempt until all previous deeds have been taken care of with the town. Closing entities will not be able to close a transaction that has any of these outstanding deeds that were not stamped exempt from a prior conveyance or transfer tax paid, until the issue has been resolved with the Town of Breckenridge prior to closing.

Celebrating a holiday with family and friends in the mountains is something special.  Thanksgiving week kickoffs the holiday season in full-swing.  Along with the holidays, comes the ski season.  So this year, plan your Thanksgiving week in Breckenridge, enjoying the turkey and cranberry sauce, cozying up next to a fire with a mug of apple cider, and some great skiing!

A Thanksgiving to Remember...

Thanksgiving is late this year, November 28th.  The ski conditions should be pretty nice.  Hopefully the snow god, Ullr, will be friendly this year, providing an abundance of snow.  During the day, hit the slopes early and enjoy some turns while others are watching football and hanging out with the family.  Burning some extra calories on Turkey Day never hurts when it comes to your second helping of turkey, mashed potatoes, and the pumpkin pie!  Breckenridge Ski Resort is going to try and have Peak 9, in addition to Peak 8, open in time for Thanksgiving week.  This will provide plenty of te…
