All Manufactured Homes purchased new after June 30, 1980, and those on permanent foundations, are subject to property taxes. As with real property, the assessed value of mobilehomes cannot be increased by more than 2% annually, unless there is a change-in-ownership or new construction. Also, any person that acquires an interest in a tenant-owned mobile home park must file a Preliminary Change of Ownership Report within 30 days of acquisition. The Preliminary Change of Ownership Report form may be obtained online via our forms section.
Many mobilehomes originally built and sold before June 30, 1980, are on the in lieu tax system administered by the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). They can be reached at (760) 237-7808 or (951) 782-4431.
