Description

Due to a loophole in property tax law, metro Detroit schools and government services lose at least $17 million a year because manufactured homes in housing parks are charged just $36 a year. This rate has been frozen since 1956. Since prefab homes will make up as much as half of all new homes in Michigan the next few years, the loophole could end up strangling suburban school funding.
