Excise Fees  
In addition to filing fees many documents require "excise fees" before being recorded. Documents go to the Treasurer's office (360-249-3751) (JEnstrom@co.grays-harbor.wa.us) to determine if excise fees are appropriate. The Treasurer’s office will then forward the documents to Recordings.
NOTE: Send two checks – 1 for excise fees and 1 for recording fees.
Examples of documents requiring an excise stamp include (but aren't limited to) the following:
Affidavit of forfeiture Indenture & Agreement
Bill of Sale Patent
Boundary Line Adjust Easements
Decl. Of Forfeiture Real Estate Contracts
Deeds (all except D.O.T.) Security Agreement
