When sending in your Park reports, could you please take the time to update the name of the contact person and phone number on your report? "Special thanks" to the parks that always provide our office with updated maps and making our office aware of all current changes. Reminder for the Parks who have not taken the time to send all the necessary information that is required by State Stat- ute, for those who do not comply with the statute your assessment ratio could change from 10% to 21%. According to Arizona State Statute, Sec- tion 42-19154 Landowner's register of Mo- bile Homes and Monthly report: violation; classification. A. If a person permits a mobile home to be placed on land that the person owns, pos- sesses or controls in a manner that permits the mobile home to be occupied as a dwelling or sleeping place for one or more persons for Page 29 a period of thirty days or more, the person shall keep a register containing information that is required by the department. B. The department shall prescribe, and the County Assessor shall furnish, forms for maintaining the register. A copy of the information in the register for each month shall be sent to the County Assessor within ten days after the month covered by the report. C. A person who knowingly fails to main- tain the register or make the report re- quired by this section is guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor. Remember if it's here in La Paz County then it should be registered here, the bot- tom line is what are you going to do? If it's going to be left here in the park then put it on the roll. If you might move it then license it, but it has to be registered here. As always if you have any questions, please feel free to contact La Paz County Asses- sor office at (928) 669-6165 and we will be happy to assist you. Until next time….
