On October 9, 2009 Governor Rendell signed into law House Bill 1607 which became Act 49 of 2009.
The Act adds additional recording/filing fees and becomes effective on December 8, 2009.
The new fees include a temporary (for 25 months) $11.25 surcharge on all county offices that currently collect the Judicial Computer System/Access to Justice (JCS/ATJ) fees except on traffic violations.
Additionally, a new permanent fee of $2.25 has been added, the revenue which is earmarked for the Criminal Justice Enhancement Account (CJEA).
This results in a combined increase of $13.50 which will be added to the current $10.00 fee, bringing the total to $23.50.
