Every mobile home owned in Georgia on January 1st is subject to property taxation. Mobile home property taxes are due by April 1st each year. A 10% late fee is due, if payment is not received by the deadline. Additionally, all mobile homes are required by Georgia law to display a mobile home decal for the current year in a prominent, easy-to-see location.
To register a mobile home, the following information is required:
- Purchase agreement, title, and bill of sale – which includes a complete description and serial number of the mobile home unit
- Name of property owner or warranty deed if purchasing land for the home
- Tax receipt for current year or shipping invoice if mobile home is newly manufactured
Titles for mobile homes must be obtained through the Motor Vehicle division. Titles cost $18.00, and all prior taxes must be paid in full for a title transfer to be completed. Once clear title has been obtained, the owner must take that information with the items listed above to the Property Appraisal Department.
The owner of the mobile home must complete a Mobile Home Return form and return it to the Property Appraisal Department. Assessments are typically completed by the end of October each year.
Property taxes on mobile homes are subjected to the same millage rates as all other properties in the County. Millage rates are determined by the governing authorities and voted on by the Board of Commissioners.
Tax bills will be mailed out at the end of the year by the Property Tax division of the Tax Commissioner’s office to the Owner of Record. The annual decal will be issued upon payment in full of property taxes.
