Chapter: 310

Affects:

Amends Sections 39-4-23 and 39-4-30 of the West Virginia Code.

  2. Raises the fee a Notary may charge from $5 to $10 for each signature notarized, for a copy certification, and for any other notarial act.
Analysis:

It's always good news when Notaries are authorized to charge higher fees for the acts they perform. House Bill 4748 does just that, allowing Notaries to charge $10 per signature that they notarize and $10 for any other notarial act.
