My document was returned because it didn’t have an exemption code referenced. Where do I find exemption codes?
Exemption codes are found within the Code of Virginia. There are several different sections of the Code for exemptions depending on the circumstances and the document type. Please see the Code of Virginia to determine the section that applies to your document, if any, and reference it on the first page of the document. You can use the Exemption Code Guide also to help. On some documents, two exemptions codes may be required as deeds have two types of taxes and a separate code may be required for each type (Grantor and Grantee). If an exemption code does not apply, a consideration will need to be shown on the first page of the document for which recordation taxes will be based on.
