Mobile Home Tax Appeal Program

When was the last time your mobile home’s taxes were assessed? If you bought your mobile home more than two or three years ago, or it’s been a few years since your last assessment, you may be paying more than your fair share of taxes. 

Why? Because unlike most real estate, mobile homes depreciate over time. Unfortunately, as your home depreciates your tax assessment isn’t automatically reduced. To make sure your tax assessment is fair, you may need to appeal.

Since 2019, the United Way of Chester County, in partnership with Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania, has helped mobile home owners in Chester County file for property tax reassessment appeals.

Note: This is a free service! They do all the work and pay all the fees on behalf of the homeowners in the program.

How much might you save? 

The program has been a huge success. Since 2019, they've helped:

  • More than one thousand homeowners win assessment appeals. 

  • Lowered assessments by nearly 67% from $34 million to $11 million.

  • Reduce individual homeowner assessments by an average of $800 per year.

Collectively, these homeowners will save $9 million in taxes over the next 10 years. Taxes they never should have owed were it not for a flaw in the state tax code.
