Understanding Mobile Homes
Transferring Ownership:
1. Obtain a Certificate of Authenticity from the Treasurer’s Office in the county in which the mobile home is located.
2. All taxes for the mobile home must be paid in full before a Certificate of Authenticity may be issued.
3. If the mobile home is moving out of the county in which it is currently located, a moving permit will be issued by the Treasurer and any pre-payment of taxes will be collected.
4. The fee for a Certificate of Authenticity is $10.00.
5. The Certificate of Authenticity and the signed title are then taken to the Department of Motor Vehicle where a new title is issued upon payment of titling fees.

Taxes:
Mobile Homes are taxed separately from the land unless the title for the mobile home has been purged and the mobile home is permanently set to a foundation.
