Dear Filing Customers,

For KSA 79-3102 and KSA 28-115 (j)

The Mortgage Tax will be calculated at .0015 % during the calendar year of 2016.

With mortgages where the principal debt or obligation is secured by a mortgage that is $75,000.00 or less per KSA 28-115 (j) there is a $125.00 filing fee cap ---- this applies to filing fees only.

To qualify the mortgage must be:

1. Single Family Mortgage on
