Florida - Hendry County Recorder Information

The Recording Division of the Clerk's Office is the central depository for all documents recorded in the Official Records Books of Hendry County as required by Florida Statute.

Recording Fees

First page: $10.00
Each additional page: $8.50

For indexing instruments recorded in the official records which contain more than four names, per additional name: $1.00

DOCUMENTARY STAMP TAX:
On real estate conveyance, per $100.00 consideration: $0.70 (Formula: .0070 x Total Purchase Price = Amount of Doc Stamps)
On obligations to pay money, per $100.00 indebtedness: $0.35 (Formula: .0035 x Amount Financed = Amount of Doc Stamps)
Intangible tax on promissory notes, written obligations to pay money (mortgages, etc.): $0.002 x total

The documentary tax stamp is due on total consideration (including cash, any unpaid balance on existing or new mortgages, plus anything having a monetary value).

If special services are requested or if there are unusual circumstances affecting fees or taxes due, clear instructions should be provided.
If taxes are not due or have been paid on another document, indicate this on the face of the new document: "Documentary Stamp Tax paid on document recorded under ______________ or Book ________ and Page no. ______." For exempt documents: "In accordance with (Exemption Number), taxes are not due on this recording." This information will not only assist in recording, but may also prevent penalties and interest from being levied by the Department of Revenue.

Include a self-addressed stamped envelope to ensure the timely return of documents.

County recording fees are subject to change without notice. For the most current fees and further information, contact the local clerk's office directly.
