Manufactured and mobile homes that sit on land NOT owned by the same person that owns the mobile home are considered Personal Property. Owners of these homes are required by Indiana Law to obtain a certificate of title for their home.
These homes are assessed on January 15th of each year and taxed in the same year. If you are the owner on record on January 15th, you are responsible for the entire years’ taxes. Bills are mailed in the spring and are due May 10th and November 10th.
To ensure property tax bills are mailed to the correct homeowner and appropriate individuals receive their homestead deduction, the Putnam County Assessor’s Office requests a copy of each home’s title. All deductions must be filed through the Auditor’s Office.
