Have you filed the mandatory monthly report with your County Assessor?

Arizona state law requires every "mobile home park and trailer court operator" to file a monthly report showing all homes which have arrived or departed from the park in the past month. 
Have you filed the mandatory monthly report with your County Assessor?

Just a reminder since we have had some questions recently at the MHCA Office - Arizona state law requires every "mobile home park and trailer court operator" to file a monthly report showing all homes which have arrived or departed from the park in the past month. This report must be filed by the 10th of each month, even if you have not had any new move-ins or move-outs. On the form, they want the make, size, year and serial number/VIN or plate number of each of the homes (hopefully you have this information on the "required standardized registration form" which every mobile home space renter is required to fill out when they rent a space). The monthly report is to be filed with your County Assessor. If you do not have the forms, please look at your County Assessor's website for it. Remember, according to state law, it is a class 2 misdemeanor not to file the form monthly.  

I have attached the Maricopa Country form for use/reference. 

 
Please also note the definition of a mobile home, according to County Assessors:
 

Arizona Revised Statutes Section 42-19151Definition of mobile home

In this article, unless the context otherwise requires, "mobile home" means a structure that is transportable in one or more sections including the plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical systems that are contained in the structure and that, when erected on site, is either of the following:

1. More than eight feet in body width, thirty-two feet or more in body length and built on a permanent chassis.

2. Regardless of the size, used as a single family dwelling or for commercial purposes with or without a permanent foundation.
