2006 Georgia Code - 48-6-69

48-6-69. (a) If any instrument required to be recorded by this article conveys, encumbers, or creates a lien upon real property located in more than one county, the tax imposed by this article shall be paid to the collecting officer of the county in which the instrument is first recorded. When the certificate of the collecting officer acknowledging that the tax imposed by Code Section 48-6-61 has been paid has been entered on the security instrument, such instrument may thereafter be recorded in any other county of this state without payment of any further tax. (b) If any instrument conveying, encumbering, or creating a lien on real property located within and outside this state as security for a long-term note is held by a nonresident of this state when presented for recording pursuant to this article, the tax required by this article shall be that proportion of the tax which would otherwise be required under this article that the value of the real property within this state bears to the total value of all the real property within and outside this state as described in the instrument. All such values shall be certified under oath by the holder presenting the instrument for recording.
