Document Recording Surcharge (HB 2060)

House Bill 2060, effective June 13, 2002, enacted a surcharge of $10 per instrument recorded in each county for affordable housing benefiting persons at 50% or less of the median family income (very low-income persons). Please refer to the current HUD income limits for Clark County.

The County Auditor's Office can keep up to 5% of the money to administer the collection of funds. Of the remaining funds, 60% stay in Clark County for low-income housing and 40% is transmitted to Washington State for use by the Washington State Department of Commerce for affordable housing.
