How Are Mobile Homes Taxed in Santa Cruz County?

Many times I'm asked how are mobile homes taxed. To which I reply often it's a bit confusing as it's mostly date related, but can be affected if you're in an ROP ( resident owned park). So follow the links to the county for the best explanation. Generally speaking mobile homes older than 1980 have lower taxes than newer units.
