Michigan Statue requires that the buyer, grantee, or other transferee notify the appropriate assessing office within 45 days of the transfer of ownership. The notification is to be in writing, specifically on form L-4260.
This form is available in the Assessor's Office. Failure to file form L-4260 will result in a penalty.
Undisclosed sales are not exempted from filing the L-4260 transfer of ownership form.
