Office of the Revisor of Statutes

The county may charge a fee to record, file, certify, or provide copies of any instrument,
document, or paper that is required by law to be filed or which may be filed in any county office.
The county may charge fees for service provided by any county office, official, department, court,
or employee. The county board may, after a public hearing, establish the amounts of fees to be
charged for the services, unless a statute has specified the amount. There must be a reasonable
relation between the fee and the cost of providing the service. A county may also impose a fee
or an interest charge on payments of money to the county that are more than 90 days overdue,
provided that late property tax payments remain subject only to the penalty and interest provisions
of chapters 277 and 279.
