Rollbacks: These property tax reductions that were only available to real property owners are now available to manufactured and mobile homeowners. There is a 10% rollback for everyone and a 2.5% credit for all owner-occupied manufactured and mobile homeowners.
House Bill 920: Passed into law in 1976, it provides a credit against all voted tax millage. As property values increase due to reappraisals, additional 'credits' are applied to voted tax levies so that property owners are not paying more than the amount of taxes the levy was originally voted to collect. The only increased revenue taxing districts receive from voted levies is from the added value of new construction.
Homestead Exemption: Manufactured and mobile homeowners 65 years old or permanently disabled are eligible if their household income is $24,100 or less per year*. This program reduces the taxable value of the property, thereby reducing the taxes owed. Applications are available through our office. The application may be filed between the first Monday in January and the first Monday in June each year in our office.
