Rep. Jason Barickman
Illinois state Sen. Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) is still singing the praises of recently enacted House Bill 2489, which requires regular reports on the sales of mobile homes.
“This is a common-sense law that helps counties make sure that tax bills for mobile homes are paid,” Barickman said in a press release of the bill he sponsored and Gov. J.B. Pritzker recently signed off on. “My hope is that this also helps reduce the costs for the counties, giving taxpayers a better value.”
The bill requires the Illinois Secretary of State to provide county tax collectors with regular reports on the sales (transfers of titles) of mobile homes. Officially signed into law by Pritzker on July 26, the bill is designed to insure that all necessary taxes for the home are paid for current and previous tax periods.
