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.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

This site was easy to use for access to State forms for filing in Montmorency County clerks office. Not only did I find claim form but a sample claim was available for assisting on how to complete your form correctly. Found this so very useful for us (public resident) to fill in the form as a .PDF file that prints out typed form - rather than handwritten entries. There is a fee but your access is always available on internet to this site in the future. Saved me time using this site and My filed form looks professional. You have access to several other forms if needed.
