ATTENTION: JCS/ATJ/CJEA Fee Increases
EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 30, 2017

*************************************************

 

Recently, Governor Tom Wolf signed into law Acts 40 and 44 of 2017 resulting in fee increases totaling $4.75 to supplement the Judicial Computer Project/Access to Justice/Criminal Justice Enhancement Account fee by amending 42 Pa.C.S. 3733.1 and enacting 72 P.S. 1795.1-E.

 

This legislation instructs Recorders of Deeds to collect this increased fee on all recordings for which the fee is currently charged.  Effective November 30, 2017 @ 4:30 pm, documents with a filing fee of $54.00 will increase to $58.75 and documents with a filing fee of $65.50 will increase to $70.25.

 

Any documents presented for recording after said time and without the correct fee will be rejected.  Please know that all revenue collected by this fee increase will go directly to the state. 

 

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Recorders Office.
