Do I have to apply for Homestead Exemption every year?

No, the only exemption that needs to be applied for every year is the Double Homestead, unless you move or change title to the property. We do send out a homestead verification typically at the beginning of the year, this is just to help us keep our records as accurate as possible.

How do I get a permit to move my mobile home or change the title of my mobile home?

You must obtain a Oklahoma Manufactured Home Certificate form 936 from the Assessor's office.
If the form is needed for a title change only, we would need a copy of the title and the name of the current land owner.
If the form is needed to move the mobile home, we would need a copy of the title, the name of the current land owner, the name and address of the new owner and a legal description of where the mobile home is being moved to.
If the form is needed for a sale, we would need a copy of the title, the name of the current land owner and the name and address of the new owner.
In order to receive this form, the taxes on the mobile home must be pre-paid along with any back taxes that are owed.
