Taxes on manufactured structures assessed as real property shall become due, become delinquent, and be collected at the same time and in the same manner as taxes on other real property. Taxes on manufactured structures assessed as personal property are subject to all the provisions of law relating to the assessment, taxation and collection of personal property taxes.
The seizure and sale for tax delinquency of a manufactured structure assessed as personal property must be conducted and carried out in the same manner as provided by law for the seizure and sale of other personal property for the collection of taxes due thereon, except as follows:
If the records of the Department of Consumer and Business Services indicate that the person to whom the seized manufactured structure is assessed is not the security interest holder, the tax collector, before selling the manufactured structure, shall give notice of the sale to any security interest holder by registered or certified mail, addressed to the security interest holder at the last-known address of the holder as shown by the records of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, mailed not later than the 10th day before the sale.
At any time before the sale, the person assessed or security interest holder of the manufactured structure to be sold may pay the tax collector the full amount of the delinquent taxes, plus any penalties and interest thereon, and costs incurred by the tax collector in seizing the manufactured structure and arranging its sale. If this is done, the tax collector may not hold the sale and shall return the manufactured structure to the person entitled to possession of the structure.
If the amount realized on the sale is in excess of the amount of taxes, interest, penalties and costs due on the manufactured structure, the tax collector first shall pay to the security interest holder, according to the records of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, the amount of their interest to the extent there are sufficient moneys to do so, and shall pay any amount thereafter remaining to the owner of the manufactured structure.
