Nesbit’s Bill to Ensure Tax Fairness for Out-of-State Manufactured Homes on Governor’s Desk
10/16/2018
HARRISBURG – To help ensure tax fairness for those who transfer ownership of manufactured homes across state lines, Rep. Tedd Nesbit (R-Mercer/Butler) today applauded the advancement of his legislation to the governor’s desk.

“This legislation is designed to clear up confusion regarding ownership titles of out-of-state manufactured homes and to ensure that proper protocol is followed for payment of real estate taxes,” Nesbit said.

“I appreciate my colleagues in both the House and Senate for recognizing that this is an important issue which can be addressed by this clarifying legislation,” Nesbit said. “I am hopeful that the governor signs this bill in the coming days to give homeowners and taxing authorities better information.”

House Bill 783 addresses instances of taxation and titling for manufactured homes which have been moved across state lines.

Currently, the ownership of manufactured homes is documented through titles, but owners pay real estate property taxes, based upon where the homes are anchored. Those taxes are shown on a tax status certification from the Tax Claim Bureau of the county where the home is situated. This would include documentation showing county, municipal and school district real estate taxes due on the mobile home or manufactured home, including any delinquent taxes turned over to a third party for collection. Real estate taxes include county, municipal and school district real estate taxes.

If a manufactured home is brought into Pennsylvania, state law requires tax certification documents from the home state in order for the transfer to take place. Since taxation laws are not the same in other states, acquiring a tax certification from the tax authority where a home may have been previously titled may prove difficult.

Under House Bill 783, homes which have not been previously titled in Pennsylvania would be exempt from the tax certification requirement from the previous states.
