CAN A MANUFACTURED HOME BE TAXED LIKE REAL PROPERTY?
Yes. The owner of a manufactured home may elect to have the home taxed like real property by filing a DTE Form 55 (Election to Have a Manufactured Home Taxed Like Real Property) by December 1 of any year. To make the election, all taxes assessed under the depreciation method must be paid. The home will be taxed like real property for the first time for the year following the year in which the election is made. Any manufactured home owner who elects to be taxed like real property cannot return to the depreciation method. All homes transferred after January 1, 2000, will be taxed like real property. Eventually, all manufactured homes will be converted to the new system.
