Kansas Bill Phases Out Mortgage Registration Tax


On May 14, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed HB 2643, which gradually eliminates the state’s mortgage registration tax. Under current law, state-chartered banks must charge mortgage loan borrowers a registration tax. Over a five-year period, the bill will gradually replace mortgage registration tax revenue with other fees collected by county registers of deeds applicable from all mortgage lenders. In addition, beginning on January 1, 2015 the maximum fee for recording single family mortgages of $75,000 or less will be $125.
