What is the Massachusetts Estate Tax Affidavit

In Massachusetts, upon death, a lien attaches to a decedent's real property for ten years, or until the estate tax is paid, or an affidavit showing that the decedent's gross estate does not require an estate tax filing is recorded by a personal representative (or other qualified person under G. L. c. 65C, 6(a)) in the Registry of Deeds.

Use the affidavit of estate tax under M.G.L. c. 65C, 14(a) to release the lien on the decedent's property. The affidavit should include the name, address, and date of death of the decedent. The affiant shall indicate whether he/she is the personal representative of the decedent's probated estate, or, if the property is not subject to probate, then the affiant's relationship to the decedent.

The document's recitals also include the address of the premises affected and the prior instrument containing a legal description of the property. All statements contained within the affidavit are made by the affiant on penalty of perjury and sworn to before a notary public.

Contact a lawyer with questions about the Massachusetts estate tax and affidavits relating to decedents' estates in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

I needed to add my partner to my warranty deed and deeds.com made it easy to understand what form I needed, attached a great explanation of the form and a sample of the form filled out. Couldn\'t be happier. In fact I\'m researching a Revocable Transfer on Death Deed now and they\'ve given me the confidence to rewrite my own will on my own.

I purchased he Alabama Correction Warranty Deed Form to correct a mistake in the legal description. However, this form says it must be signed by all who previously signed the deed. One of these people is now deceased. Can I use this form? How would it be different? I would give you 5 stars but wish this issue had been addressed. Thanks.

Reply from Staff

Thank you for your feedback. From the product description: All parties who signed the prior deed must sign the correction deed in the presence of a notary.

I'm typing along and suddenly I can't fit anything more into the page and there's plenty of room. This is my 2nd time using this site. No problem the first time years ago. Now it's an issue, looks like I'll need a typewriter to finish the form. Where do I find a typewriter?!! I can't complete the legal description!

Reply from Staff

Thanks for your feedback Nora. If you are unable to find a typewriter you can always do as the guide suggests and use the included exhibit page.
