Effective June 1, 2013 appointments are required for transactions related to manufactured structures. Please contact the Assessor's Office to make an appointment.

Your manufactured structure may be eligible for the exemption process if you own the land the manufactured structure is located on. This exemption means that the structure is recorded as part of the land account and is considered real property for assessment purposes. If your manufactured structure is already exempt, you do not need to complete any forms unless you are going to move the structure. Exempting a manufactured structure means that when transferring ownership of your property by deed recording, your manufactured structure will also be transferred. For more details on how to complete this process, please contact us at (541) 388-6508 or you may contact any title insurance company.

Requirements for every transaction:

  • All taxes must be paid in full. From July 1 until the tax roll is extended, pre-collection of taxes is also required (unless otherwise noted)
  • All fees and taxes must be paid. All fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. Payment by cash or check only will be accepted for all fees other than tax payments. Contact the Deschutes County Tax Office to find out what payment methods other than cash or check will be accepted (541) 388-6540.
  • All transactions require the completion of a Supplemental Information form, BCD #440-1066

Fee for research by the County Assessor's Office staff costs $65.00 per hour, half hour minimum, payable in advance.

Removal of Exemption Status

If NO ownership change:

If changing ownership:

  • A Security Interest Change Form with the lender’s release does NOT mean the home can be removed from the property unless it was the original lender when the home was exempted. Anytime an exemption is being removed, if there is a lien on the property, a letter from the current lender must be provided saying the home can be moved off the property.
