Mobilehome Tax Clearance Certificates
If a mobilehome was purchased new after June 30, 1980, or if the payment of annual
license fee renewals on a mobilehome are delinquent more than 120 days (except delinquencies
which begin after May 31, 1984), a Tax Clearance Certificate is required to be issued
by the County Tax Collector prior to transfer of title through California's Housing
and Community Development Department.
To issue a Tax Clearance the County Tax Collector requires that a Request Form be completed and accompanied by either:
1) a copy of the title search from Housing and Community Development;
2) a copy of the pink slip; or
3) a copy of the last registration certificate on the mobilehome; or
4) if due to death, bring a copy of the death certificate.
If you do not have the required information, please contact the Department of Housing
and Community Development at 3737 Main St., #400, Riverside, CA 92501. (800) 952-8356.
Following receipt of this information, the Tax Collector performs a search of the
tax rolls to verify that mobilehome assessments exist for each applicable tax year
following the date the mobilehome was originally entered on the County's tax rolls.
Should an assessment for any tax year not be on the tax roll, fees for those years
may be collected, as directed by the Assessor's office.
Due to the high volume of requests, processing can take from one to four weeks to
complete. Upon completion, the Tax Collector will mail you a notice of the amount
due and will, following receipt of payment, promptly issue the Tax Clearance Certificate.
Payment must be made by CASH, CASHIER'S CHECK OR ESCROW CHECK.
As you can see a number of steps are involved in finalizing this transaction. We
ask and do appreciate your assistance and understanding. Tax Clearance Certificates
will not be completed on a walk in basis, but are logged in and completed
in the order received.
A fee of
will be charged for any subsequent requests of a Mobilehome Tax
Clearance. Should you wish to contact the Tax Office concerning this matter, please
telephone (951) 955-3900.
