Collection Of Delinquent Taxes On Mobile Homes

Concerning the collection of delinquent taxes on certain mobile homes.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subjects:
Fiscal Policy & Taxes
Local Government

Mobile homes are homes built prior to the passage of the 'National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974', and manufactured homes are homes built after its passage. Mobile or manufactured homes that are affixed to the ground, and are therefore no longer capable of being moved, have a certificate of permanent location and are valued, taxed, and subject to tax collection in the same manner as all other real property. Mobile or manufactured homes that are not affixed to the ground, and are therefore capable of being moved, have a certificate of title and are valued and taxed as real property but subject to the collection of taxes like personal property.

Current law requires that when taxes are delinquent on personal property, the county treasurer must enforce the collection of delinquent taxes by commencing a court action or by distraining, seizing, and selling the property. This includes mobile or manufactured homes that are not affixed to the ground. The bill modifies the county treasurer's duties in connection with the collection of delinquent taxes on such mobile or manufactured homes that are not affixed to the ground. Specifically, the bill makes the process to enforce the collection of delinquent taxes on mobile or manufactured homes that are not affixed to the ground permissive, and therefore gives the county treasurer more flexibility to enter into partial payment agreements with the owners of such mobile or manufactured homes. The bill authorizes the county treasurer to declare tax liens on mobile or manufactured homes that are not affixed to the ground as county-held to address title deficiencies in conjunction with the collection of taxes. In addition, the bill authorizes the county treasurer to withhold tax liens on mobile or manufactured homes that are not affixed to the ground from being sold to investors.
