Legal Notice Rates

State law requires the OMB to establish legal notice standard rates NDCC 46-05-03.

OMB and the North Dakota Newspaper Association (NDNA) determine each newspaper’s legal notice line rate based on that newspaper’s column width, font size and font style. Each newspaper must use its rate as approved by OMB for publication of all legal notices.

If a newspaper changes column width, font size or font style the changes must be submitted to OMB for review. A new line rate will be calculated, if necessary. Legal Rates Form

If questions for OMB, please email the State Proocurment Office.

State agencies may contact NDNA to place legal notices in any or all North Dakota newspapers, or contact newspapers directly.
