Increase in Fees for Suffolk County Tax Map Verification
Suffolk County passes Local Law 34-2015 increasing tax map verification fee
Local Law 34-2015 increases the tax map verification fee from $60 to $200 per tax lot, effective December 18, 2015. Note that there is no maximum or cap in the case of multiple lots, and that any documents that are re-submitted on or after December 18th.
Agents collecting the increased fee for closings that occur prior to the effective date of December 18, 2015, should ensure that refunds are made in the event that the verification process occurs prior to December 18th, and the old rate is applied to your closing documents.
