Mobile Home Registration
(If mobile home owner does not own land on which home is permanently affixed)
When the mobile home owner does not own the land on which the mobile home is permanently affixed, he/she must register the mobile home with the Tax Collector's Office. State statutes require registrations to be renewed annually by December 31. Click here for more information.
Declaration as Real Property
(If mobile home or recreational vehicle owner also owns the land on which the mobile home/recreational vehicle is permanently affixed.) If you own your mobile home or recreational vehicle and the land on which it is affixed, you must:
- complete a Declaration of Mobile Home as Real Property form (DR402) with the Duval County Property Appraiser's Office; and
- obtain a Real Property Series ('RP') decal from the Tax Collector.
Mobile home owners must provide the registration or title to the mobile home and the recorded document transferring ownership of the land on which the mobile home is permanently affixed. This should be handled in person, in the Customer Service/Exemptions Division of the Duval County Property Appraiser's Office, 231 East Forsyth Street, Room 260. A fee is required for the sticker which is obtained from the Tax Collector. 'RP' decals are permanent and transferable to a new owner when the land and mobile home are sold as a unit. Contact the Tax Collector's Office at (904) 255-5700 for current fee information.
Filing for a Homestead Exemption
If you own the mobile home and land, and the home is your primary residence, you may also qualify for a homestead exemption. The property owner may apply for a homestead exemption at the same time he/she completes the Declaration of Mobile Home as Real Property form in the Duval County Property Appraiser's Office.
For more information, please contact the Customer Service/Exemptions Division at (904)255-5900.
