When the consideration paid or exchanged for the real property is other than money, the consideration is equal to the fair market value of the real property.

A deed transferring an interest in Florida real property between husband and wife, including when a spouse's name is added to a deed, is subject to the documentary stamp tax. In most cases, the amount of tax is based on half of the amount of the unpaid balance of any mortgages. Documentary stamp taxes are not due if the marital home is transferred within a year of a divorce and if the transfer occurred on or after July 1, 1997. Real Estate Deeds
