Up to one year from the first purchase or most recent transfer= 1% of the gross proceeds of sale.
Between years 1 and 2 from the first purchase or most recent transfer= 2% of the gross proceeds of sale.
Between 2 years or more from the first purchase or most recent transfer= 3% of the gross proceeds of sale.
