think of all the taxes you may have unnecessarily paid :)

from Co law:
"24-21-529. Notary's fees
(1) Except as specified in subsection (2) of this section, the fees of a notary public may be, but must not exceed, five dollars for each document attested by a person before a notary, except as otherwise provided by law. The fee for each such document must include all duties and functions required to complete the notarial act in accordance with this part 5"

Seems to me the important distinction is "five dollars for each document attested by A PERSON " the law does not stop at each doc, but at attested by A person. It does not state one or several people but one person. Seems reasonable to conclude that the same document being attested to by a second, third, or however many people would be separate notarial acts for each person (or entity as the case may be.)

As Jerry posted from the CO law:
"24-21-502. Definitions
(6) "Notarial act" means an act, whether performed with respect to a tangible or electronic record, that a notarial officer may perform under the law of this state. The term includes taking an acknowledgment, administering an oath or affirmation, taking a deposition or other sworn testimony, taking a verification on oath or affirmation, witnessing or attesting a signature, certifying a copy, and noting a protest of a negotiable instrument."

Again, I would interpret taking AN acknowledgement or AN oath is one notarial act. Where "An" is referring to one, not two or many. Each person must individually acknowledge or affirm by placing their signature.

so in my mind, and fortunately for me clearly stated in Oregon's handbook, a fee is assessed for each signature.
