These property tax reductions that were only available to real property owners are now available to manufactured and mobile home owners. There is a 10% rollback for everyone and a 2 ½% credit for all owner-occupied manufactured and mobile home owners who are taxed under the Appraised Method.
House Bill 920
Passed into law in 1976, it provides a credit against all voted tax millage. As property values increase due to reappraisals (inflation), additional credits, known as reduction factors, are applied to voted tax levies so that property owners are not paying more than the amount of taxes the levy was originally voted to collect. The only increase in revenue that taxing districts receive from voted levies are from the added value of new construction.
Manufactured homeowners, 65 years old or permanently disabled, are eligible. This program reduces the taxable value of the property, thereby reducing the taxes owed.
