REQUIREMENTS FOR DOCUMENTS

• Documents should be submitted on white paper that is at least 8.5x11 inches and no larger than 8.5x14 inches. The instrument should be printed, typed, or computer generated in black ink with a font size of at least 8 point.

• On the top of the first page, there should be a 3 inch margin. If this space is not provided, the Register of Deeds will add an extra page or use the back of an existing page, for which an additional fee will apply. All other margins should be at least 1 inch.

• Signatures should be in dark black or blue ink. The name of each involved party should be typed, printed, or stamped beneath the signature. An embossed or inked stamp shall not otherwise materially interfere with any part of the instrument.

• Below the 3 inch margin on the first page, a return address and a title to the instrument should be given. After it has been recorded, the book and page or computer system reference where it may be found will be endorsed upon it.

• Grantees must file a completed tax statement as prescribed by the Tax Commissioner upon recording a deed. The county assessor will process the statement according to the instructions of the property tax administrator and will then forward the statement to the Tax Commissioner.

• Each seller of residential real property located in Nebraska shall provide the purchaser with a written disclosure statement of the condition of the real property. The disclosure statement shall be executed by the seller. Details of the statement can be found in the Nebraska Revised Statutes 76-2, 120.

• The grantor must sign and acknowledge the document, pursuant to Nebraska Revised Statutes 64-205.

TRANSFER TAX

A Real Estate Transfer Statement form 521 must accompany documents to be recorded. Any grantee or grantee’s authorized representative who wishes to record a deed to real property must file the form 521.

A land contract or memorandum of contract requires a completed form 521, which is not subject to the documentary transfer tax until the deed is presented for recording.

This form can be obtained from the Nebraska Department of Revenue website, under the heading “Forms.”

The documentary stamp tax imposes a tax on the grantor upon the transfer of a beneficial interest in or legal title to real estate. The rate is $2.25 per each $1,000 of value.

The documentary stamp tax is due at the time of recording, unless it is specifically exempt. If a document is exempt, a Certificate of Exemption must be filled out.
