What are the recording fees?

The fee for recording for most documents is $46 with an additional $50 if accompanied by a well certificate. Some documents have different fees, such as a plat which is $56. Torrens documents may have additional fees. 

The fees for recording are payable to the Benton County Recorder and must be in a separate check from the state deed tax or mortgage tax.
