Yes. They do. And if it's a transfer of a government office, the Affidavit of Property Value that we all have to fill out to declare the sale price . . . they're exempt from that too.

In AZ, you 'don't have to' record a property ownership with the state recorder. Most do, but many choose not to for those types of reasons. But there are other ways (in AZ) to hide your record.

I am in Illinois and just found the current and former governors, and the mayor of Chicago in the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.  I don't know any police,  but I tried a couple of criminal courts judges' names, and they came up.  Personally, if I were in the public eye, I'd put my properties in land trusts, to keep prying eyes off my ownership records.

  While searching for owner names on a street yesterday, one of the lots is "blank".   When you click on the map, nothing appears (typically the name of the owner, property appraiser basic info, etc. will show up).  

    On the street I was searching, I know the owner of that "blank" lot...  he is in Law Enforcement.  I was reminded of the Florida statutory "address blocking" exemption.

I do come across a property once in a while with a strange name and no way to track down the owner, perhaps this is some govt official or famous person.

No sir you can find anyone in Arkansas,  I suspect if you were to try and find out where the Governor or any elected official lives someone would knock on your door to question you.
