I want to sell or move my mobile home, what do I do?
Make sure all taxes are paid up to date. You can do this at the County Treasurer’s Office, whether moving or selling the home.
The Treasurer’s Office will complete a tax certificate at the time you take care of your taxes which will be taken to the Secretary of State’s Office; this certificate is needed for selling the mobile home.
In the event of a sale, the tax certificate and a copy of the signed over title must be taken to the Secretary of State’s Office in order to obtain a new title.
Moving permits are issued by the County Treasurer’s Office. Again, you must take care of all taxes before the permit will be issued.
I sold my home over a year ago, but I still get the tax bill…. why?
Did you get a completed tax certificate from the Treasurer’s Office? The owner of the home must take care of all steps listed above before a title can be transferred. This is the responsibility of the homeowner.
I am buying a mobile home and placing it on a private lot What do I need to do?
Get the location cleared with your local zoning office; they will make sure there are no covenants regarding mobile homes. Register your property with your Assessor. Be sure to contact the mobile home registration office at (217) 753-6705 to ensure you have all the proper forms on file, you may not need to file any documents-but it is better to be overly cautious.
When are tax bills due?
The bill amount is always due no later than July 1 by the close of business, regardless of the date the bills were mailed. The mailing is done from mid-May thru June.
