How Do I Record Fees For Workplace Notarizations In My Journal?

New Hotline Resized 3My boss determines whether we charge clients fees for notarizing their documents. What do I enter in my journal as the fees I charged, $0 or what my boss collected?L.D., California

If you receive fees for your notarizations — even if you pass them to your employer because you have a fee agreement in place — you must enter the fee in your journal and you may make a note that the fee was remitted to your employer.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. — The Editors
