Intangible tax, class 'C' on all real estate mortgages must be paid before the clerk can accept any mortgage for record. This applies only to mortgages, agreements or contracts for deed, deeds of trust, or other liens pertaining to personal property.
The proper amount of state taxes must be affixed to any instrument before it can be recorded. Space for documentary stamps and clerk's time stamp should be provided in the body of the instrument. If this space is not provided, an $8.50 charge will apply to make an additional page.
The consideration for the conveyance of an equitable interest in real property pursuant to an agreement or contract for deed includes the amount of any payments made and the unpaid balance of the agreement or contract. Tax is calculated on the full contract price and shall be paid on the contract when made. No stamp tax is due on the recorded deed made when the proper amount of taxes have been paid on the contract. The deed should indicate, by notating on the contract, that the proper amount of tax stamp has been made.
