Mortgage Tax Chart per state statue title 68 § 1903
Before a mortgage can be filed in the clerk's office, it must have a certification on it from the treasurer's office showing that mortgage tax has been paid on the instrument. The amount and length of a mortgage determine the amount of mortgage tax that must be paid. In addition to mortgage tax, there is also a $5.00 certification fee due to the treasurer.
What is a certification fee?
For any original mortgage,extension,modification,refiling mortgage for any reason or tax exempt co. etc. a $5.00 fee has to be paid to the county treasurer.
Who should I call for questions related to mortgage tax?
You can call the Oklahoma county treasurer (Cashier's Office) at 405-713-1311 for questions related to mortgage tax or certification fee.
How do I pay the mortgage tax and certification fees?
The checks for the Mortgage tax and the Certification fee are made payable to the Oklahoma County Treasurer.
Note: The tax and fee can be paid in one check but they have to be separate from the county clerks filing fees.
What are the forms that needs to be submitted?
You will have to download and complete two forms (Mortgage Tax Affidavit and Information Sheet) associated with the mortgage tax. The forms are available in the forms section above.
The Oklahoma County Assessor determines property values and provides notification of valuation. If you have any questions concerning your assessment, please contact the County Assessor's Office at 405-713-1200.
Failure to receive a statement is not a legal reason for waiving interest. The Treasurer must assess interest on all delinquent payments at a rate of 18% per year, added monthly on the 15th day of each month, at a rate of 1.5%.
If your mortgage company is responsible for payment of your real estate taxes, as soon as we receive payment and post your account, it will immediately reflect paid on our web site. Most mortgage companies use a third party tax service company. This means your mortgage company remits payment to the tax service company who in turn submits payment to us for all mortgage companies they service.
If your tax does not show paid and your mortgage company states they remitted payment for your taxes most likely the payment went to a tax service.
If you are a new owner of a property, you should contact the County Assessor's office with the correct address to send the statement before September 30. As they will certify the accounts to our office on October 1.
Your property taxes may be paid in full or in 2 installments. The one half or the full amount must be paid by December 31st. If nothing is paid by December 31st, then the full amount becomes delinquent January 1st and interest is added.
We can not accept first half payment after the December 31st due date. If you choose to pay the first half payment on December 31st, then the last half becomes due on March 31st.

Approximately 95% of the tax collections are made by mail through an automated system that allows a faster and more accurate processing of payments and provides a daily balance and audit record. These records are backed up by magnetic tape, which is stored in an off-site vault for security purposes. Tax collections are balanced on a daily, monthly, and year-to-date basis, which allows the investment of funds to be made with more accuracy. All special assessments, such as sewer, water, weed, cleaning, paving, and nuisance abatement taxes that are originally assessed by cities and towns in the County are certified to the County Treasurer for collection after they have become delinquent. They are placed as a lien on the real estate property account of the taxpayer.
The Treasurer's office also manages County-owned property acquired at the annual sales of real estate for delinquent taxes. The Treasurer also may sell these pieces of property, upon approval of the Board of County Commissioners.
