Effective Jan. 1, 2009, a single, newly-revised Real Estate Transfer Statement Form 521, with an original signature, must accompany all deeds, memoranda of contracts and/or land contracts. (See Neb. Rev. Stat. ss76-214, as amended by LB 965.)
Recently, the Nebraska Department of Revenue announced that the color-coded, carbonized version of the form 521 will be replaced by the single-part form. Upon recording a document, the Register of Deeds office will forward a copy of the form 521 to the Assessor's office.
Also effective January 1, the revised form 521 will be available on our website, for your convenience. To locate the form and its completion instructions, go to the home page, then place your cursor on the "real estate transfer statement" form 521 link. On the drop-down menu, click on the instruction page or the fillable form. After completing the form, print and sign it. An original signature is required on the form when it is submitted with a deed for recording. We only need one copy of the form 521 when recording your deed.
