With that being said, the co-op flip tax is not actually a tax but rather a transfer fee charged by the corporation when a sale occurs in it’s community. A co-op board will mandate a flip tax on sales to generate revenue. Dolla dolla bills, y’all. The idea behind a flip tax is that it’s a less painful way to raise funds for the co-op as opposed to increasing maintenance fees or charging a special assessment to everyone in the complex. The amount of a flip tax will vary from co-op community to co-op community but we often see flip taxes in the 1% to 3% range. Side note, if you’re in an HDFC co-op, you flip taxes are often a lot, lot, lot higher. We’re talking about 30% to 50% of your profits higher. I’m sorry. Beyond the amount, co-op boards use different methods of calculating their flip taxes. Some charge a flat fee, others base their flip tax off the percentage of the final sales price per unit, while still other co-ops charge a flip tax that is a certain percentage of the seller’s profits.

Now who has the illustrious honor of paying the flip tax and having their NYC closing costs increased? The seller of the shares of the co-op often pays the flip tax. However, sometimes these co-op fees are paid by the buyer, or they’re split between both parties. Your contract of sale will always detail who is responsible for paying the flip tax at your closing.
