The Norfolk County Registry of Deeds
will be closed
Monday, January 21st
in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
When the consideration (purchase price) on a deed is for $100.00 or more the seller must pay an excise tax. The excise stamp was affixed to the deed and then cancelled to avoid the reusing of the stamp. Excise stamps are now printed on the deed and therefore no cancelled stamp is necessary.
