In Florida, the County Tax Collector collects state mobile home registration fees and local property taxes. All mobile homes must be registered and titled by the County Tax Collector. Depending on the type of mobile home there are three ways to register with the state; Mobile Home Decal, Real Property Decal or License Plate. Registrations and decals for mobile homes expire annually on December 31st .
The length of the mobile home determines the fees; multiple-width units must have a decal issued to each unit. For example, a double-wide mobile home would have two decals issued, one for each side/unit. A delinquent fee is charged if the registration is renewed after January 10th.
The decal is affixed to the lower left corner of the window closest to the street or access road.
Tangible personal property tax may be assesed if the appropriate state decal or plate is not purchased for the mobile home.
A mobile home permanently affixed to the owner's land that has been declared as real property is issued a "RP" (real property) decal. "RP" decals are permanent and have no expiration date. Owners must obtain a form DR-402 from the Property Appraiser's Office by showing that the land and mobile home are in the same name before an "RP" decal can be issued. "RP" decals are transferable to the purchaser upon the sale of the land and the mobile home as a unit. Instead of yearly decals, Property Tax is collected once a year and combines the land and the mobile home into one assessment.
