New Stickers for Fuel Tax

A new red sticker will soon be required at the Gas Station. Gas Station owners have the option to have it on the pumps, post it on video screens or in a prominent place. These stickers itemize the taxes included in the price of a gallon of fuel in order to inform the consumer and are required by the last year’s state transportation budget, which also raised the state tax on gasoline by 10.5 cents per gallon on July 1, 2019. The diesel fuel tax increased by 19 cents per gallon. Proceeds from the fuel tax are used to maintain and upgrade Ohio’s roads and bridges. The stickers were created and paid for by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The stickers will be affixed by the County Auditor’s office during routine inspections conducted by Weights and Measures Inspector, Jeff Fantozzi. Fuel tax stickers must be in place in each county and city jurisdiction by September, 2020. Stickers will be updated with any future changes to the gas tax.

eRecording has started in Erie County!

What is eRecording?

Electronic Document Recording is a method of delivering and returning documents electronically from a submitter’s office to the recorder. eRecording can be an option for Title Companies, Law Firms, Banks, and other business that record documents on a regular basis today. The actual recording of the document is still done by the Recorder in their software system. Recorded documents are returned electronically.

Benefits of eRecording:

  • Helps to reduce the time from submission to return of documents, from 3-5 days to within minutes or hours of the initial submission
  • Save time, money and resources normally spent on document packaging, delivery & return
  • Reduce rejections and document & payment errors.
  • No cutting and processing checks. Payment of recording & eRecording fee is handled electronically.
  • Enhance document tracking & security
  • Helps with industry best practice compliance.

We currently have three eRecording vendors that offer these services that can be used in submitting the documents electronically.

If you have questions about eRecording, please contact the Erie County Recorder’s Office 419-627-7686.
