When we sold the estate of our deceased parents, we paid 6% capital gains tax to BIR, the buyer paid 1.5% documentary stamp tax to BIR, and the notarial fee (2% of selling price indicated on the Deed of Sale) equally shared by seller (us) and the buyer. The tax paid to BIR was based on the selling price indicated on the Absolute Deed of Sale, or Fair Market Value indicated on the Tax Declaration or the Zonal Value commissioned by BIR, whichever is higher.
