Upcoming Change to Tax Law for Manufactured Homes

Effective July 1, 2019, procedures for postponing property taxes for some owners will be established by a new law. The Senior Citizens Manufactured Home Property Tax Postponement Law replaces a law which only affected mobile homes, and now includes all manufactured homes. Homeowners must meet the following criteria to qualify:
1. blind, disabled, or over 62
2. own and occupy the property as their primary residence
3. total household income of $35,000 or less
4. at least 40% equity on the property
5. no reverse mortgage on the property

Should the homeowner meet these requirements, the payments can be deferred by requesting that the State Controller pay the county. The owner will then need to pay the deferred amount plus interest. The amount is paid upon sale or transfer of ownership of the property, or if the owner moves or dies.
