Mobile Homes

 

How are mobile homes assessed?

Mobile homes are assessed from the October issue of the NADA book , and assessed at 19% per the State of Missouri.

Mobile homes are assessed similarly to vehicles in the fact that it is based on who owned the mobile home on January 1st, where the mobile home was located, year, and make of the mobile home.

Mobile homes differ from vehicles in the fact that they are claimed where they are located and not where the owner is located. Also, the total square footage is taken into consideration when figuring the assessed value.

Per Section 137.092, RsMo the mobile home parks are responsible for rendering the mobile homes and owners located within the park to the Assessor's office every year. So, even if you don't claim it on your personal list, it may still be added based on the report that we receive from your park.

Aren't mobile homes real estate?

Mobile homes are only considered real estate if they are permanently affixed to a permanent foundation. If that is the case, you will need to make sure to contact Clay County.

I received a bill, but only my mobile home was on it. Why?

More than likely, we did not receive your personal assessment list, but the mobile home was rendered to us by the park. When that happens, we do not assess the vehicles until the taxpayer either sends in their personal assessment list or comes in to one of our locations to be assessed.

I no longer live in Clay County. Why am I still being assessed on the mobile home?

Until we are informed by the park or the taxpayer, whoever's name is on the title or the purchasing agreement for the mobile home will be the person responsible for the taxes.

I'm renting a mobile home, am I responsible for the taxes?

It should state in your rental agreement who is responsible for the taxes. If it is a 'rent to own' agreement, you may be responsible. Make sure to check your agreement or contact whomever you are renting from.
