New Law Phases Out Fees Kansas Lenders Pay To Counties For Home Mortgages

Governor Brownback has signed legislation phasing out the fees paid by Kansas lenders to counties to register home mortgages. The Kansas Legislature's website said Brownback signed the measure Wednesday. 

Bankers and real estate agents have argued that home buyers are getting what amounts to a tax break. But county officials fear they'll be forced to boost local property taxes to offset what is expected to be $53 million in lost revenue over the next five years. The new law will phase out the mortgage registration fee by the year 2019.
