Mobile Home Property Taxes

The Treasury Division, Property Tax Office is responsible for the original billing and collecting of taxes for mobile homes located within the Municipality of Anchorage.  January 1 of each year the owner of a mobile home is required to file an assessment return with the Municipal Assessor's Office by a specified deadline. 

If you sold a mobile home after January 1, all current and prior year taxes owed against the mobile home must be paid at the time of sale.  A Tax Certificate of Paid Taxes is required by law under AMC 12.05.075 to be furnished to the buyer at the time of sale or legal transfer of the mobile home.
