Mobile Home Tax Reassessment Program
You Can Lower Your Property Taxes!
United Way of Bucks County, in partnership with Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania, is offering free assistance to mobile home owners in Bucks County to file for property tax reassessment appeals. We will do all the work and pay the fees of the eligible homeowners in the program.
Your mobile home depreciates over time, but the tax authority won’t lower your assessment unless you appeal. Last year, United Way and Legal Aid helped 177 people lower their assessments, on average by 70%. Their taxes in 2021 may be as low as 30% of what they owed in previous years.
Step 1: Fill out the form below. Include all the ways we can contact you. We will schedule an appointment with you starting in Spring 2021 and take it from there.
Step 2: You tell us about your home at a 30-minute appointment and we do the rest.
Step 3: We complete and file your appeal, pay for appraisal and county filing fees and attend the appeal hearing for you. You don’t even have to face the appeal board.
Because we know many mobile home owners struggle to make ends meet. Some are even at risk of losing their homes. Our missions are to help people in need and this program allows people to pay their fair share AND save money at the same time.
Who are you? United Way of Bucks County and Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania are two nonprofit organizations who work to help those in need. We are a joined by local volunteers, including volunteer legal experts, to help save you money.
Will there be any repercussions from the government if I appeal? No, it’s actually a well-known problem that the tax system does not account for mobile home depreciation. Many people realize that appealing your assessment is the only path to paying an accurate amount under the current system. You have every right to file an appeal.
Can’t I just do this myself? Yes, you can, but we will do it with legal assistance and with no fees to you. If you would like to appeal on your own, email us and we can send you a do-it-yourself kit or visit: www.buckscounty.org/government/Finance/BoardofAssessment
