If I have a Texas domestic partnership, what do I need to do to ensure my partner can take over ownership of my home without paying large amounts of money?

If you are planning for your death, you will need a will. Items received via a will or any other testamentary transfer are valued by the IRS on date of death of the testator
I agree with Mr. Engelke. You should also investigate whether or not a living trust might work for the two of you. Texas is peculiar when it comes to these issues. Find a lawyer who understands the nuances of gift and estate tax between people who cannot be considered spouses under state law.
