The Commissioner of Internal Revenue
has received a number of inquiries from
registers of deeds, clerks of court, and
others asking whether they would be jus
tified in recording deeds, etc., which are
sent to them unstamped. They repre
sent that deeds are often received from
persons who cannot conveniently pro
cure stamps, asking that they be affixed
by the recorder. ' The commissioner an
swers in the negative, and in his reply
states that the grantee or person who
makes or issues the instrument should
affix and cancel the stamp. If he omits
to do so he incurs a penalty of not more
than $100. If, however, the omission is
inadvertant, he may present tie instru
ment to the collector within a year from
the date of issue, pay the stamp tax, and
present the instrument for post-stamping.
The commissioner advises that when an
unstamped instrument for record be re
ceived, it be returned fb --be.. stamped.
