In the event the home is in the used category, and bought from a private party, the buyer pays the tax directly when registering the home at the office of the tax collector for the county. If you are purchasing a mobile home whether new or used. Make sure you build the appropriate Florida and county tax amounts in to your personal budget.
You can renew your mobile home taxes by mail or in person, look out for your registration renewal notice yearly in December. As a reminder, the Tax Collector’s Office mails renewal notices to mobile home owners every year.
