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.

The only reason for the low review was I could not find the form that I needed.

The actual transfer of deed form seems to be the only one not fillable in Adobe. Seems odd.

Signing up was easy and the form was amazing. The ability to type on it (I am on a MAC) was beyond my expectations, the ability to save a blank, save my two documents, save the instructions and sample was excellent. The documents are in the mail and we are hopefully they will be approved. Blessings,

I purchased the La St. Tammany Parish Quit Claim Deed as a gift for a friend. Currently waiting on a lawyer to draft his second version of what a La Quit Claim should look like. I have downloaded this St. Tammany La packet for simplicity and double protection for my friend. So far, I really like what I see from Deeds.com, short and to the point.
It's truly a breath of fresh air. Thank you so much. Layperson Cathy for a friend.

My questions were answered promptly. I was not able to locate the deed I was searching for because my county has not uploaded the documents to be accessed through this system. I am sure I could have found what I was looking for had the information been available through the system. Thank you for your assistance.
