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.

Santa Cruz County TAXES ON MOBILE HOMES

Manufactured Housing and mobile homes that aren't mobile any more.

How can I change taxation of my mobilehome from license fees to the local property tax system?

You can request a voluntary conversion to local property taxes by calling (800) 952-8356 or writing to: State of California, Department of Housing and Community Development, P.O. Box 8111, 6007 Folsom Boulevard, Sacramento, California 95810.

If my mobilehome is currently subject to local property taxation, can I request reinstatement of DMV license fees?

Once mobilehomes have been changed to local property taxation, it is not possible to reinstate DMV license fees.
