Starting July 1, Wyoming Notaries may charge a maximum fee of $5 for notarial acts — more than double the current maximum fee of $2. And West Virginia Notaries may be the next to see their fees go up, also from $2 to $5. The Wyoming fee increase for — which applies to all notarial acts — was signed into law this year as part of House Bill 19. The full text of HB 19 can be found here. In West Virginia, HB 4012 has passed the state legislature and is on the Governor’s desk awaiting signature. In addition, the legislatures in Tennessee, Connecticut, Minnesota, Missouri and New York are considering bills that would raise fees for notarial acts.
