Reversing a decision of a Kings County Supreme Court judge, the Appellate Division has unanimously held that a residential housing cooperative corporation’s termination of its participation in the Mitchell-Lama Housing Program did not result in a transfer of real property within the meaning of the New York City real property transfer tax law, and therefore was not subject to the tax. Trump Vill. Section 3, Inc. v. City of New York, 2012 NY Slip Op. 6595 (App. Div., 2d Dep’t, Oct. 3, 2012).
