The Kane County Clerk’s office is also responsible for calculating the taxes on mobile homes. The taxes are calculated by year of the mobile home and square footage.
To calculate the mobile home tax bills, the following formula is utilized:
Step 1. Determine the age by subtracting the coach year from the current year
Step 2. Find the rate:
if the number of years are 0 -2, use .1500 as the rate
if the number of years are 3 to 5, use .1350 as the rate
if the number of years are 6 to 8, use .1200 as the rate
if the number of years are 9 to 11, use .1050 as the rate
if the number of years are 12 to 14, use .0900 as the rate
if the number of years are 15 or more, use .0750 as the rate
Step 3. Compute the rounded tax amount
Square feet X rate
Step 4. If the reduction code is 1, then take the rounded tax amount
times .2 as the reduction
Step 5. Compute the net tax amount (rounded tax amount - reduction)
Square feet (500) x Tax rate (.0750) = Tax Due ($37.50) - reduction (0.0) = Net Tax ($37.50)
After the tax calculation is run the Treasurer’s office mails out and collects the taxes. In December all taxes that have not been paid go to tax sale. Home owners can call the Tax Redemption office after the tax sale for redemption information.
