Mobile Home Moving Permit SEARCH AND PAY TAXES

North Carolina General Statute 105-316.1 requires that in order to relocate a mobile home, a moving permit must first be obtained from the Tax Collections Department. There is no charge for this permit. State law requires the permit to be displayed near the license tag on the rear of the mobile home at all times during transport. The following information must be furnished when applying for a permit:

  • Name and address of the owner(s) as of the preceding January 1(s).
  • Name and address of the current owner.
  • Purchase date of the mobile home.
  • Address from which the mobile home is to be moved.
  • Address and County to which the mobile home is being moved to.
  • Make, model, year, size and serial number.
  • Name, address and telephone number of the carrier who is to transport the mobile home.

 In addition to supplying the above information, it is also required that all property taxes due on the mobile home be paid in full (NCGS 105-316.3). These taxes also include those which have not yet been computed but which will become due during the current calendar year. 

 A holder of a lien on a mobile home may acquire a moving permit for relocating the property to another location in North Carolina without paying the taxes at the time of application (NCGS 105-316.4). When the permit is issued, the holder of the lien will receive a statement of taxes due against the mobile home and is responsible for payment of the taxes within seven days of the issuance of the permit. Any applicant who is a nonresident of North Carolina must pay the taxes at the time of application for the permit.

 Manufacturers and retailers transporting mobile homes, which are part of their inventory, are not required to obtain a moving permit.
