Real estate excise tax, also known as revenue stamps, is imposed by North Carolina law and collected by the Register of Deeds at the time of recording. The tax is levied on conveyances of an interest in real estate by all persons and organizations except federal, state, county, and municipal governments and their instrumentalities.

In Camden County, the tax is broken down into two parts. The grantor/seller pays the excise tax to the Register of Deeds of the county in which the land is located. The rate of the excise tax is $2 per $1,000 or fractional part thereof on the consideration or value of the property or interest conveyed. The Land Transfer tax is paid to the tax office with a separate check. The rate is 1% of the selling price.

A deed must go to the tax office for certification before the Register of Deeds office can record it. An Affidavit of Consideration or Value must be completed. Real Estate Deeds
