TAXATION OF MOBILE HOMES

THE INCREASING USE OF MOBILE HOMES AND HOUSE TRAILERS PRESENTS A PROBLEM IN TAXATION. THE INHABITANTS USE THE HEALTH, EDUCATION AND OTHER FACILITIES OF THE STATE, JUST AS DO THE OCCUPANTS OF HOUSES OR APARTMENTS. AT PRESENT, HOUSE TRAILERS AND MOBILE HOMES ARE TAXED AS TRUCKS OR AUTOMOBILES. THE LARGEST PART OF THE REVENUES GO INTO THE HIGHWAY FUNDS, LEAVING ONLY A SMALL PART OF THE ORIGINAL EXCISE TAX FOR THE TOWNS. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE FOR REVISING THE TAX STRUCTURES ON THESE VEHICLES IN ORDER TO EQUALIZE THE TAX BURDEN AND SPREAD THE REVENUES MORE FAIRLY. /AUTHOR/
