|In Msg #602829 Jerry Lucas went over the definitions and requirements of notarial acts and certificates in a thread about Social Security Self Employment taxes. I don't want to hijack the tax thread so I'll start a new one.|
CO has adopted RULONA, and so has my state, VT (goes into effect July 1 in VT).
RULONA requires a notarial certificate for every notarial act, even a purely oral oath administration. I guess you give it to the affiant; no idea what the affiant would do with it.
Although short form certificates are given for most notarial acts, including taking a verification on oath or affirmation (that's where the affiant swears a record is true), there isn't one for purely oral oaths, so the notary would have to invent one. Perhaps like this:
State of Vermont
County of Oz
Before me on February 30, 3001, John Doe swore, so help him God, to tell the truth and the whole truth at a hearing of the Oz Board for the Regulation of Lollipops.
My commission expires on January 31, 3003
Note absence of any signature by John Doe.
