Not a Manatee County resident?  Effective 7/24/17, Out-of-County residents needing to process title and/or registration transactions for vehicles, boats, and mobile homes can only be served at First Manatee South County Tag Agency, located at 5756 14th St W, Bradenton.

There are very specific circumstances in which you may be exempt from paying sales tax on the purchase price of mobile home:

  1. When a mobile home is given to you, from an individual, for no consideration in return (no money exchanges hands).
  2. When you trade mobile homes with someone else and no additional consideration is exchanged.
  3. When you inherit a mobile home from someone who is deceased.
  4. When you purchase the mobile home and the land and it is assessed as "real property" by the Property Appraiser.

Other situations may qualify for a full or partial sales tax exemption.
