Deed Certification

 

It is the duty of the Gogebic County Treasurer's Office to certify each deed before being recorded at the Register of Deeds Office. Certification of a deed affirms that the County Treasurer's Office has verified that all taxes have been paid on the property, as far back as 5 years prior to the date of the deed. 

The deed given to the Treasurer's Office must be the original deed - copies will not be accepted. Please also include the parcel number on the deed.


Fees for deed certification are as follows:

$5.00 on tax certifications for all documents that require the tax certification.
$0.20 per each additional parcel number exceeding 25 parcel numbers.

 

ONCE CERTIFIED, ALL DEEDS SHOULD BE RECORDED AT THE REGISTER OF DEEDS OFFICE.
