Before a document can be recorded, all applicable fees must be paid. These fees include recording fees, documentary transfer tax, the Building Homes and Jobs Act fee, and other fees depending on the type of legal description appearing on the deed, the size of the form, and the number of names to be indexed.
Current Fee Schedule
Documentary Transfer Tax
Transfer Tax is collected by the Recorder’s Office when a transfer document is recorded, unless an exemption applies. The transfer tax statement must be on the face of the document. The amount of tax is based on the fair market value of the property. The Recorder’s staff can assist you in determining how much tax is due, but cannot determine the value of the property.
