107,007 MH Tax Liens Removed from Titling Records

Following the April 18 deadline to properly preserve tax liens older than four years, the MH Division of TDHCA in accordance with the various statutory mandates, removed 107,007 delinquent tax liens on manufactured homes across the state of Texas. 

Now into the seventh year, recall during the 2013 Legislative Session TMHA championed a bill, HB 3613, that required all tax liens for manufactured homes older than four years to be properly and timely preserved, or else they must be removed from the title.  For liens that were not preserved by the tax entities filing collection suits against them, the liens older than four years are annually purged from the titling records.

Estimates are that nearly two million tax liens totaling nearly a half a billion dollars in tax liens have been removed in seven years.
