Personal Property Taxes on Leased Land
If you live in a mobile home park (such as Sunset Ridge) you may receive a tax bill. This bill is for improvements on leased land which are assessable as personal property. Examples of these improvements are sheds, garages, carports, decks, etc. These taxes are your responsibility and are not the responsibility of Sun Communities. This is your personal property so Sun Communities would not be responsible for it. Failure to pay these tax bills allows the Township to put a lien on this personal property and in some cases, remove it from the property.
