Non-Resident Sale of Real Estate

Sale or Exchange of Real Property and Associated Tangible Personal Property

If the transferor / seller is a Nonresident individual or Nonresident entity, and is transferring an interest in real property located within the State of West Virginia, unless the transaction is otherwise exempt from the income tax withholding requirement, the person responsible for closing must file Form NRSR with the West Virginia Tax Division.

If there are multiple transferors/sellers, a separate form must be completed for Nonresident individual or Nonresident entity subject to the withholding requirements. The separate form requirement does not apply to a husband and wife filing a joint West Virginia income tax return.
