Moving or Selling a Mobile Home?

If you are planning to move or sell your mobile home, you must have a Tax Release Letter signed by the Chisago County Treasurer stating there are no current year or delinquent taxes owing on the mobile home. In order to receive this Tax Release Letter, you must provide a current title with the sellers name before the Tax Release Letter is signed. There is no charge for this document. You can then transfer the title to the new owner at a Minnesota Department of Vehicles office. The Certificate of Title must be accompanied by the Tax Release Letter from the Chisago County Treasurer stating that all the mobile home taxes have been paid through the current year.
