Affidavits
About 
  • Affidavits for Exemption - $5 fee in duplicate with at least one original

Affidavit for exemption of special additional mortgage tax (mortgagee is an individual or Federal Credit Union) needs the following information: 
  • Basis for the exemption
  • Dollar amount of the mortgage
  • Location of the property
  • Mortgagor and mortgagee names

Federal Credit Union can claim exemption on any type of land, but the individual mortgagee can only claim it on a one- to six-family dwelling with separate cooking facilities (cannot say "to be improved").

Must have a jurat, "sworn to before me", not an acknowledgment (unless it is signed by an attorney with the statement "being an attorney at law, licensed to practice..., makes this statement on the pains and penalties of perjury").
