The Kane County Clerk’s office is also responsible for calculating the taxes on mobile homes. The taxes are calculated by year of the mobile home and square footage.

To calculate the mobile home tax bills, the following formula is utilized:

Step 1. Determine the age by subtracting the coach year from the current year


Step 2. Find the rate:


if the number of years are 0 -2, use .01250 as the rate

if the number of years are 3 to 5, use .01125 as the rate

if the number of years are 6 to 8, use .01000 as the rate

if the number of years are 9 to 11, use .00875 as the rate

if the number of years are 12 to 14, use .00750 as the rate

if the number of years are 15 or more,  use .00625 as the rate


Step 3.Compute the rounded tax amount

Square feet X months X rate

Step 4. If the reduction code is 1then take the rounded tax amount

times .2 as the reduction

Step 5. Compute the net tax amount (rounded tax amount - reduction)

Step 6. The total rate then is rate X months


For Example:

Square feet (500) x months (12) x Tax rate (.00625) = Tax Due ($37.50) - reduction (0.0) = Net Tax ($37.50)





After the tax calculation is run the Treasurer’s office mails out and collects the taxes. In December all taxes that have not been paid go to tax sale. Home owners can call the Tax Redemption office after the tax sale for redemption information.
