Will the Tax Collector send me a reminder to renew my mobile home 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 mobile home?
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.
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.) If your registration/decal has become delinquent, read our delinquent mobile home FAQ.
