This does not apply if the transfer is by operation of law; by lease for a term of years; by or pursuant to the provisions of a will; by intestacy; by gift; if no consideration in property or money is due or paid by the transferee to the transferor; by merger, conversion, or consolidation; or by an instrument securing indebtedness.

If the instrument transfers a parcel of real estate lying in two or more counties, the tax must be paid to the register of deeds of the county in which the greater part of the real estate with respect to value lies.
