The Sales Tax on Manufactured Homes
Has Not Gone Up!

State officials have been telling member companies and the public that the base tax on manufactured homes has increased to $500.

For example, the SCDMV recently told lenders the agency would not issue titles unless the "new" tax amount was collected.

The confusion came from a misreading of legislation passed in Columbia which did raise the sales tax on automobiles, but not manufactured homes.  

After MHISC discussed the error with the DMV’s attorney, the agency corrected taxpayer instructions on its website, returning the stated base amount to $300.

Our association is contacting officials whenever this misunderstanding comes up. 

Current MHISC members who encounter problems are encouraged to contact the association for help in educating officials on the issue.
