Frequently Asked Questions

My mobile home is sitting on a permanent foundation on my property - how will it be taxed?
For purposes of taxation, mobile homes affixed to the land on a permanent foundation are not considered "mobile" homes, but are viewed instead as modular housing, and have always been taxed in the same way as conventional homes.
