Notaries provide services ranging from taking acknowledgments and executing jurats to administering oaths and certifying copies. They serve in a wide variety of private businesses and government offices.
Under the Nevada Revised Statutes, Chapter 240, the Nevada Secretary of State is charged with the responsibility of appointing notaries. Applications and instructions on how to become a notary can be found at the Nevada Secretary of State's Office website.
After completing the requirements, applications and bonds are filed with the county clerk. The filing fee is $20. The applicant will then receive the necessary documents to return to the Secretary of State.
