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 however, 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 at 507-375-1205 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.
To transfer the title of the mobile home, the taxes are to be paid in full. Please contact the treasurer's office, 507-375-1213, for a tax amount or estimate.
