Most mobile home tax authentications require you to visit all offices located in the county ACT building - 679 Turner Dr. Please confirm the hours of each office so you can complete the process in one trip.
Please note that our office cannot create tax authentications for mobile home processes between January 1 - January 15th every year due to the annual Tax Roll.
Mobile homes can be one of two types: purged or un-purged.
A mobile home that is purged is valued as part of the real property. In order to purge a mobile home, the home must be permanently attached to the land; a home without a permanent foundation cannot be purged. If the home is purged, there is only one R account number for both the home and the land and only one tax bill is received. Once a home is purged, the property can be transferred by deed.
For more details on how to purge a mobile home, please visit http://co.laplata.co.us/doing_business/manufactures_mobile_home_process/processes_by_type/ and search under Processes by Type - Affixed Manufactured Home Prior to July 1, 2008 (Title Record) or Affixed Manufactured Home after July 1, 2008 or Affixed Manufactured Home Prior to July 1, 2008 (No Title Record).
A mobile home that is un-purged will have a title and is valued as separate from the land. An un-purged mobile home is not attached to a permanent foundation. An un-purged mobile home will have an M account number and receive a separate tax bill for the home. In order to change the ownership on an un-purged mobile home, the title must be transferred. If an un-purged mobile home is sold with the land, the title must be transferred in the Clerk and Recorder's office.
