Personal Property Regulations
By state law, an appraiser must value personal property which could include decks, additions, and travel trailers. If a trailer has current license registration, it is exempt from personal property tax. If it does not display a current license, it must be valued as personal property and you will receive a tax statement for this personal property. This tax is due and payable in the same year.
Homestead is available for personal property mobile homes. Call the Assessor's Office, 507-934-7062, to receive an application. Homestead applications are to be completed and returned to the Assessor's Office by May 29. If the application is not returned, it will result in a non-homestead classification.
Transferring Mobile Home Titles
To transfer the title of the mobile home, the taxes are to be paid in full. Please contact the Public Services Department at 507-934-7670 for a tax amount or estimate.
