Are any transactions exempt?

Yes. Conveyances between husband and wife, parent and child, grandparent and grandchild, and brothers and sisters are exempt. A deed between ex-spouses is also exempted. There are also other exemptions that are allowed in certain situations. It is best to consult your attorney to find out what these exemptions are.
