Civil Practice Law and Rules
 
    § 8019. County clerks generally. (a) Application. The fees of a county
  clerk  specified in this article shall supersede the fees allowed by any
  other  statute  for  the  same  services,  except  in  so  far  as   the
  administrative  code  of  the city of New York sets forth different fees
  for the city register of the city of New York and the  county  clerk  of
  Richmond, and except that such fees do not include the block fees as set
  out in the Nassau county administrative code, which are to be charged in
  addition  to  the  fees specified in this article. This subdivision does
  not apply to the fees specified in subdivision (f) of section 8021.
    (b) Legible copies. Whenever a  paper  or  document,  presented  to  a
  county  clerk  for  filing  or  recording,  is  not legible or otherwise
  suitable for copying or  recording  by  the  photocopying  process,  the
  county  clerk  may require a legible or suitable copy thereof along with
  such paper or document, and the same fees shall be payable for the  copy
  as are payable for the paper or document.
    (c)  Notice  to  county  clerk.  A county clerk need not make an entry
  which is required by a court order unless proper notice is given to  the
  clerk by a party to the action or a person legally interested therein.
    (d)  Exemptions  for  state  or  city of New York. A clerk of a county
  within the city of New York shall not charge or receive any fee from the
  city of New York or the state of New York or from any agency or  officer
  of either acting in official capacity.
    (e)  Size  of page and type. For purposes of this article, the size of
  each page accepted by a county clerk for recording  and  indexing  shall
  not  exceed  nine inches by fourteen inches, except that in the counties
  of Cattaraugus, Columbia, Delaware, Herkimer,  Monroe  and  Otsego,  the
  size  of  the  page shall not exceed eight and a half inches by fourteen
  inches, and every printed portion thereof shall be  plainly  printed  in
  not  smaller than eight point type. The county clerk acting as recording
  officer may in special circumstances accept a page exceeding the size or
  with smaller print than that prescribed herein, on  such  terms  and  at
  such  fee,  subject  to  review  by  the  supreme  court, as he may deem
  appropriate, but the fee for such recording and indexing  shall  not  be
  less than double the fees otherwise chargeable by law therefor.
    (f)  Copies  of  records. The following fees, up to a maximum of forty
  dollars per record shall be payable to a county clerk  or  register  for
  copies  of  the  records  of  the  office except records filed under the
  uniform commercial code:
    1. to prepare a copy of any paper or record on  file  in  the  office,
  except  as  otherwise provided, sixty-five cents per page with a minimum
  fee of one dollar thirty cents;
    2. to certify a  prepared  copy  of  any  record  or  paper  on  file,
  sixty-five  cents  per  page  with  a minimum fee of five dollars twenty
  cents;
    3. to prepare and certify a copy of any record or paper on  file,  one
  dollar twenty-five cents per page with a minimum fee of five dollars;
    4.  to  prepare  and  certify  a  copy  of  a certificate of honorable
  discharge, except as provided for in the military law, two dollars fifty
  cents; and
    5. to prepare a copy of any paper or record on file in the office in a
  medium other than paper, the actual cost of reproducing  the  record  in
  accordance with paragraph (c) of subdivision one of section eighty-seven
  of the public officers law.
