     Before moving or selling a mobile home, the taxes must be paid to date.

     To obtain a clear title, you will need a Mobile Home Certification, availabe at the Jefferson County Treasurer’s Office and then filed with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office.

     Documentation required for certification includes the original title and names and addresses for both the seller and the buyer.

     There is a $5.00 fee to obtain a Tax Certification through the Treasurer's office.  We accept cash or check only for certifications.

Call the Treasurer's office if you wish to see if you have any unpaid Mobile Home taxes.
