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

Before moving a manufactured structure, you will need to secure a placement permit from your local Planning Department to be sure that the manufactured structure may be sited at the new location.

When you have a placement permit from the planning department, either the Assessor's Office or a licensed mover can issue a trip permit. There is a $5.00 trip permit fee per section and a $30.00 county movement fee. You will need to provide the transporter’s name and the placement permit (must at least have placement permit number). To obtain a trip permit for a structure moving out of Deschutes County, all taxes for the current fiscal year must be paid in addition to all prepaid taxes for the upcoming tax year. 

You will receive a tax bill from the county where the manufactured structure was sited on January 1 of the current year. A manufactured structure that moves within the state of Oregon between January 1st and December 31st will be assessed and billed at the new location the next fiscal tax year. No prepay taxes will be collected on a  manufactured structure that moves out of the state of Oregon on or after January 1 and prior to July 1 of the current year. If a manufactured structure is moving out of the state of Oregon after July 1, prepayment taxes will be collected.

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
