Article 1. Computation of Fee
10760. Reinstatement. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a mobilehome sold new on or before June 30, 1980, on which the license fee required to be paid under this part has been delinquent for 120 days or more, shall not be subject to local property taxation, if a request for reinstatement to the vehicle license fee under this part is filed with the Department of Housing and Community Development with a postmark dated no later than December 31, 1986, showing verification by the county tax collector that payment of property taxes on the mobilehome is current, as of the date of filing.
(b) Applications for filing for reinstatement pursuant to this section shall be provided by the Department of Housing and Community Development through its offices and offices of county assessors and county tax collectors.
(c) A mobilehome shall not qualify for reinstatement to the license fee under this part unless payment of property taxes on the mobilehome is current. Reinstatement applications shall include a provision for county tax collectors to verify that the payment of property taxes is current. For purposes of this section, mobilehome owners who submit reinstatement applications to the tax collector for verification prior to September 1st of the fiscal year for which property taxes on the mobilehome will be due and whose verified applications are filed with the department with a postmark date no later than 30 days thereafter are considered current on the payment of property taxes if the payment of property taxes on the mobilehome for prior fiscal years has been satisfied.
(d) A mobilehome, on which the license fee required to be paid under this part has been delinquent for 120 days or more, which was not actually enrolled on the local property tax roll prior to October 1, 1984, shall not be subject to local property taxation as a condition of reinstatement to the license fee under this part. Tax collectors shall verify on the reinstatement application that such a mobilehome was not enrolled prior to October 1, 1984. Any license fee and penalty which would otherwise be due under this part during the period of delinquency shall be paid to the Department of Housing and Community Development as a condition of reinstatement to the license fee.
(e) Any used mobilehome, the sale of which has not been subject to sales or use tax pursuant to Section 6379 or Section 18116.5 of the Health and Safety Code, shall not qualify for reinstatement to the license fee under this part unless, in addition to the other requirements of this section, the full sales or use tax liability on the last sale, which would have been owed if the mobilehome had not been subject to property taxation, is paid.
(f) The Department of Housing and Community Development, upon receiving the verified reinstatement application and determining that the requirements of this section have been complied with, shall reinstate the mobilehome to the license fee, establish a license fee renewal date for the mobilehome, and notify the county tax assessor to remove the mobilehome from the local property tax roll.
