Mobile Home and Heavy Truck Registrations Due December 31

Scott Lunsford, Escambia County Tax Collector, reminds those residents who own mobile homes, heavy pickups, nine-passenger, for hire and commercial vehicles to renew their registration by December 31.

Mobile homes taxed as real property must display a permanent RP decal. Mobile homes not taxed as real property are subject to yearly registration fees. Each section of the mobile home requires a separate registration, which must be displayed and visible from the roadway. Registration fees are based on the length of the mobile home and must be renewed by December 31. A delinquency fee will be charged if the registration is not renewed by January 10, 2018.

Florida law requires that registrations for all trucks with an empty weight of 5,000 pounds or more expire in December. The registered owner is required to declare a gross vehicle weight (GVW). Registration fees are determined by the gross vehicle weight.
