Income Tax Tips For Notaries And Signing Agents


As a notary, you should include all fees received for notarial acts in your gross income on a Schedule C (Form 1040) according to IRS Publication 17, as long as you are a sole proprietor or single-member LLC. However, you should be aware that you cannot charge or receive a fee for services over the maximum amount prescribed by state notary laws. In addition, you may be able to charge additional fees for mileage/travel expenses when going to a signer’s location, depending on the state.

It’s important to note that notary fees are considered taxable ordinary income and are not subject to self-employment tax. However, other fees or services that you offer may be subject to both ordinary income tax and self-employment tax. For example, if you have a notarial services business that earned $9,000 last year and $2,000 of that was from fees earned for specific notarial acts, the $2,000 would be exempt from self-employment tax, but the remaining $7,000 would be subject to self-employment tax. If your net self-employed earnings are less than $400, you are not required to pay self-employment tax.
