Transportable Homes

In Wyoming, a Transportable Home is defined as the following:

  • Manufactured home - means a residential dwelling built in accordance with the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards which is a unit more than 8 and 1/2 feet in width which is designed, constructed and equipped as a dwelling place, living abode or place of business to which wheels may be attached for movement upon streets and highways except a unit used primarily as a mobile laboratory or mobile office.
  • Modular home - means a residential dwelling constructed in a factory to a residential construction code other than the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards.
  • Pre-built home - means any residential dwelling that is wholly, or in substantial part, made, fabricated, formed or assembled in manufacturing facilities for installation or assembly on a building site. Pre-built home shall include, but not be limited to, a manufactured home, modular home and mobile home.

Change of Title/Ownership

The State of Wyoming only requires a Sales Tax on the first selling of a new Mobile Home. As mentioned in Wyoming Statute 39-15-103:
  • The tax imposed by this article upon the sale of a transportable home shall be collected upon the first sale of the transportable home. The tax shall be collected on seventy percent (70%) of the sales price of the transportable home. No sales tax shall be collected upon any subsequent sale of the home.
However, the current years property taxes need to be paid in order for a title to be transferred. If the current years taxes have not been set yet, the County Assessor's Office will issue a form for taxes due. This form is then brought to the Treasurer's Office for payment. A receipt is issued which is brought to the County Clerk's Office with the  seller's notarized title, and a new title is issued in the buyer's name.
