DEED TAX is .50 per $500, or $1.00 per $1000.00 based on the appraised value or purchase price (a minimum of .50 must be paid if 100% financed)

As of August 1, 2012, RT-1 Real Estate Sales Validation form must be completed and accompany all deeds unless information contained in the RT-1 form is incorporated into the deed. An additional $2.50 page fee will be charged for the recording of this form. This form is available under our forms tab. This RT-1 form does not apply to correction deeds.

MORTGAGE TAX is .15 per $100.00 or $1.50 per $1000.00 of amount financed.
Mortgage tax is to be rounded UP to the next highest $100.00 on a fraction thereof; i.e. $24,550 would be rounded up to $24,600 x .0015.

Mortgages and deeds to exempt entities are SUBJECT to an additional .50 no tax stamp fee.

DEEDS AND MORTGAGES FILED SIMULTANEOUSLY: The tax is paid on the deed in the amount of the down payment or equity. If the total purchase price is financed in the mortgage, then the DEED TAX is a minimum of .50. If a deed is filed with a tax-exempt mortgage, DEED TAX is based on the full purchase price or appraised value.

MISCELLANEOUS DOCUMENTS: Releases, Assignments, Affidavits, Certificate of Judgment, Liens, Powers of Attorney, etc.
Please use the above basic recording fees as shown for deeds and mortgages

NOTE: If a document is executed by more than two parties (i.e. grantor, grantee, mortgagor, mortgagee) you must add $1.00 for each additional name above two to the recording fees. This includes a/k/a, d/b/a and f/k/a names, partners of partnerships, and members of LLC’s. We do not index anything after the word “successor in interest”. We do not charge for attorney in fact.
