[ARCHIVED] New Law - Senate Bill 405—Tax Certification--Recording Deeds

Effective January 1, 2010, Senate Bill 405 amends North Carolina General Statutes 105-228.32 and 105-317.2 affecting deeds recorded in the Register of Deeds Office.

A person who presents a deed conveying property for registration must report to the Register of Deeds the amount of tax due. It is the duty of the person presenting the instrument for registration to report the correct amount of tax due. Before the instrument may be recorded, the Register of Deeds must collect the tax due and mark the instrument to indicate that the tax has been paid and the amount of the tax paid.
