2008 DOC fee maximum is $150

November 22, 2010
The state's maximum documentary service fee for 2008 is $150, following Illinois legislation passed in August.

The fee structure continues the provision for annual adjustments tied to the federal Consumer Price Index.

The CATA developed a poster regarding the DOC fee that dealer members can post. Two copies of the poster are included with this newsletter. 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 DOC fee up to the maximum allowed, but every customer must be charged the same amount.

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

Dealer staff also should arrange to print new buyer's orders that reflect whatever DOC fee they will charge.
