Avoid standing in line, and save time and gas ... renew online at www.gorenew.com (subject to eligibility). You can also renew by mail, which costs less than renewing in person.
Will the Tax Collector send me a reminder to renew my boat registration/decal before it expires?
Typically, around mid to late October, our office will mail renewal notices to the owner(s) of mobile homes located in Manatee County. All mobile homes expire December 31st of each year. (Note: Travel trailers and park models permanently affixed to the ground with a license plate expire on the 1st registered owner's birthday each year. Renewal notices for these vehicles are typically mailed the month before the expiration month.) Renewal notices are mailed as a courtesy to facilitate renewal. However, it is the registered owner's responsibility to know the expiration date and renew on time, regardless if a renewal notice is received.
What is required to renew my boat?
Mobile homes can be renewed as early as October 1 and it's not necessary to wait for your reminder notice to renew. Proof of insurance is not required to be submitted to our office to renew a mobile home.
How much will it cost to renew?
If you are within 3 months of your expiration month (October 1 for mobile homes), you can verify the cost of your renewal at www.gorenew.com.
You can also visit http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BTR/83140.pdf to view the current renewal fees for mobile homes.
Registration fees for mobile home registrations/decals are set by the Florida Legislature and are based on length. The longer the mobile home, the higher the registration cost. (Double-wide mobile home fees would be twice the single-wide fee, since two decals are required and have separate titles/identification numbers for each piece. Likewise, triple-wide mobile home fees would be triple, since three decals are required.) Click here if your registration/decal has become delinquent.
