Floating Homes

Shelly Scott, Assessor - Recorder - County Clerk

A floating home is assessed in the same manner as real property. For property tax purposes, floating homes are not categorized as vessels. A "Floating home" as defined in California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 229 means a floating structure that is all of the following:

  • It is designed and built to be used, or is modified to be used, as a stationary waterborne residential dwelling.
  • It has no mode of power of its own
  • It is dependent for utilities upon a continuous utility linkage to a source originating on shore.
  • It has a permanent continuous hookup to a shore side sewage system.
