According to rrobserver, MHProNews has learned Sandoval County (New Mexico) Treasurer Laura Sandoval says nearly half of all manufactured homes in the county, representing 1,905 properties, owe property taxes that are delinquent, totaling $600,000. Of these, 721 homes have unknown addresses or only a post office box; 535 manufactured homes have invalid serial numbers in this county, just north of Albuquerque. She says some people move from one county to another without registering the home, and some do not know they have to pay. Currently, all her staff is female and none feel comfortable knocking on doors since a story circulated that a resident was observed exiting his manufactured house toting a rifle.
