Documentary Transfer Tax (AB 1888)

Effective January 1, 2015, pursuant to Assembly Bill 1888, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office will require that “EVERY document subject to tax that is submitted for recordation shall show on the face of the document the amount of tax due and the incorporated or unincorporated location of the lands, tenements, or other realty described in the document” before acceptance for recording.

The option to file a documentary tax declaration on a separate document has been removed, therefore, as of the above effective date, the Recorder will not accept “not for public record/NPR” or the “Declaration of Documentary Transfer Tax for Legal Entity Changes in Ownership” forms for this purpose.

The above requirements are in accordance and compliance with the legislative amendments made to Sections 11932 and 11933 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, relating to taxation, by AB 1888.
           

The mission of the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk is to serve Los Angeles County by providing essential records management and election services in a fair, accessible and transparent manner. For more information, visit www.lavote.net.
