McCall remitted $467.50 in state writ taxes to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, while Carbon County municipalities and school districts shared realty transfer tax disbursements totaling $124.704.80, the same amount that was forwarded to the state in realty transfer taxes.
McCall deposited $2,784 in the Recorder of Deeds Record Improvement Fund and $1,856 in the Carbon County Records Improvement Fund, these being fees assessed by state law on each transaction for records management needs.
