2006 documentary service fee set at $57.33

November 22, 2010

The state’s maximum documentary service fee for 2006 is $57.33, the Illinois attorney general’s office announced Dec. 15.


The $1.94 increase over the 2005 maximum fee reflects a 3.5 percent rise in the federal Consumer Price Index for the 12-month period ending Nov. 30. The index is tracked by the U.S. Department of Labor.


As always, the DOC fee is taxable and must be substantiated upon request by the attorney general’s office.


The CATA developed a poster regarding the DOC fee that dealer members can post. Two copies of the poster are included with print editions of this newsletter, and limited additional copies are available upon request.


On the poster, the DOC fee amount is blank and left for dealers to fill in; a dealer may charge any amount up to the maximum allowed, but every customer must be charged the same amount.


IMPORTANT: The new maximum fee cannot be charged before Jan. 1.
