Mobile Homes.

 

Where do I go to register my mobile home?  You need into our office and fill one-maybe two forms. The first form is a 521 Mobile Home transfer statement. This form lets us know who the buyer and seller is, how the home was transferred, where the home is currently located and where it is was at the time of purchase, basic information on the home itself, the legal description, and the purchase price. The second form is a form 402. This form is for individuals who do not own the land their mobile home resides on.  This form lets us know

who owns the land and who owns the improvement (home) on the land.

 

What if I sell my mobile home?   When you sell your mobile home you must prorate the taxes yourself between buyer and seller. The county does not prorate taxes. You will sign the title off to the new owner and they will start the process all over again. If you sell a mobile home and the new owner does not fill out the forms 521 and 402 there will be no record of this transaction in our office thus, the tax statement will remain in your name until this information is obtained.

 

What if I move my mobile home?  Before you move a mobile home the moving company requires a moving permit. A permit will not be issued until the current taxes are paid up to date. That requires accelerating or making taxes due now instead of at the end of the year. Moving a mobile home without accelerating is punishable with a class four misdemeanor.

 

What do I have to do if I own a Mobile Home Park?  If you own a mobile home court, you must provide our office with an annual court report listing the date the mobile home was parked, the lot number it is located on, the owner of the mobile home, the make, year, width and length of the mobile home. The annual court report is required by January 15th of every year. Quarterly reports are due in by April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st for any changes occurring after the annual report.
