Recordation tax.  Eliminates the recordation tax exemption for certain deeds of trust securing a refinanced obligation, and establishes a reduced tax for all refinancing deeds of trust or mortgages that is equal to a maximum of 18 cents ($0.18) per $100 of the amount refinanced. Under current law, there is an exemption for a deed of trust or mortgage that is refinanced with the same lender on the principal amount of the original debt; all other such instruments of refinancing are subject to the tax at rates higher than the new rates established in the bill.
