Counties should soon have a better idea of whether tax bills are up to date for mobile homes, thanks to legislation sponsored by State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) and signed into law recently by the Governor.
House Bill 2489 requires the Illinois of Secretary of State to provide county tax collectors with quarterly reports on the sales (transfers of titles) of mobile homes. The goal is to ensure that the necessary taxes for the home are paid for current and previous tax periods.
“This is a common-sense law that helps counties make sure that tax bills for mobile homes are paid,” said State Sen. Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington). “My hope is that this also helps reduce the costs for the counties, giving taxpayers a better value.”
The legislation was signed into law on July 26th.
