The Revised Uniform Partnership Act of 2001 (RUPA), codified at T.C.A. § 61-1-101 et seq., created a new class of documents that have titles such as statement of partnership, statement of partnership authority, statement of denial of partnership, statement of dissociation, statement of dissolution, statement of merger and amendment or cancellation of any of these statements.  The standard fees apply to the recording of these types of partnership documents.  However, this act did not repeal the older law that provides for the recording of certificates of limited partnership and certificates of merger of limited partnerships and the fee for recording these certificates continues to be $5.00 plus fifty cents per page for each page in excess of five pages. T.C.A. §§ 61-2-206, -211.  This same special fee structure of $5.00 plus fifty cents (50¢) per page for each page in excess of five (5) pages also applies to documents of limited liability companies as well as corporate charters and related documents.  T.C.A. §§ 48-247-103, 48-11-303, 48-51-303.
