Tax bills/assessment notices were mailed Dec. 28 for manufactured homes. If you own a manufactured home, but do not own the land, you are renting or leasing a space for your home from another property owner, you should have received a bill/notice. If you did not receive a bill/notice please contact the Board of Tax Assessor’s office at 754-2125 as soon as possible.
This is your 2008 bill for your manufactured home, but it is also your assessment notice. If you disagree with the value that has been assessed on your home, you have 45 days from the date of the notice to appeal in writing to the Board of Tax Assessors. The last day to appeal is Feb. 11.
The board must receive the appeal by 5 p.m. Feb. 11 or if mailed it must be postmarked by a U.S. Post Office with that date or the appeal will not be accepted for 2008.
If you received a bill/notice and you also own the land where the manufactured home is located you may be entitled to a homestead exemption. March 1 is the last day to file for homestead exemption for 2008.
If you file for homestead exemption the value of your manufactured home will be included on your property tax bill and will have the due date of the property tax bill.
If you have any questions or need further information about filing for homestead exemption please call the Board of Tax Assessors at 754-2125 or visit their office at Courthouse Annex, 768 Highway 119 in Springfield.
