Do I Need To Make Three Journal Entries For Three Different People?

New Hotline Resized 3I am scheduled to notarize 11 documents for three people; do I need to make a journal entry for each signature? M.S., California

Yes, a journal entry is required for each signature notarized on each document. So, if three people will be signing 11 separate documents, this would require 33 complete and separate journal entries.

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
