New Sales Tax will Raise the Price of Manufactured, Modular Homes

MHProNews has learned from as of Jan. 1, 2014 that the North Carolina sales tax on manufactured homes will increase from two percent to the general rate of 4.75 percent, and on modular homes from 2.5 percent to 4.75 percent. Neil Carter, owner of Carter’s Homes in Fletcher says a $50,000 manufactured home will now cost $2,700 more, which could be a deterrent to lower-income shoppers. “It does hurt the affordable housing side, but we have other regulations that make it cost more, too,” he said, referring to rules requiring a paved driveway and grassy lawn before homes can be sited. The increase will also apply to entertainment and educational venues, even non-profits.
