This fee is imposed by the clerk of court of each county for the privilege of recording a deed, with respect to any deed whereby any land, tenements or other realty is transferred to another person. The fee is $1.85 on realty value of $100-$500 and $1.85 ($1.30 for state portion and $0.55 for county portion) for each $500 increment afterwards. The state’s portion of the fees, collected by the clerks of court or registers of mesne conveyance, must be paid monthly on MyDORWAY (or with the Deed Recroding Fee L-2125 paper form), due on or before the 20th of the month following the month in which the transaction was recorded. Counties retain their portion of the fee: $0.55 of each $1.85.
