How Is A Manufactured Home Taxed?
Manufactured Homes are Taxed as either Real or Personal property.

  •Real Estate Manufactured Home - Any manufactured home which is located on land owned by the owner of the manufactured homes shall be listed and assessed as real property in the county in which it is located. The owner may also apply for homestead exemption.

 • Personal Property Manufactured Home - Any manufactured home located on land not owned by the owner of the manufactured home shall be assessed as personal property in the county in which it is located.

 The only difference in valuing real and personal property manufactured homes is the assessment ratio:
               Personal Property Ratio - 13.75 %             Real Estate Ratio - 11%

 How do we determine the market value of your manufactured home?
 In Oklahoma County, market value is based on a market driven cost approach. In determining a final market value, the following adjustments must be considered:
 •Quality of Construction
 •Square footage
 •Types of amenities
 •Physical condition at time of physical inspection

All value adjustments are derived from current market information gathered at the time of the sale from the following sources:
 •Sales between dealers and individuals
 •Sales between individual owners to individual buyers

All sales information is analyzed and grouped by sales type. Types include owner occupants, purchased for resale (profit), sales adjusted for financing , and trade-ins, etc. Only arms-length transactions are used in the final analysis of the appraisal process.
