Mobile homes DO pay property taxes! Technically the tax is called a privilege tax but it functions as a property tax. Property tax bills are sent by the Champaign County Treasurer/Collector in March/April every year and have one installment due in June. Paying this on time is very important. Failure to pay property taxes can result in increased fees and eventually a loss of the home. If you didn't receive your property tax bill by mid-May, contact the Treasurer/Collector's Office at or 217/384-3743.

If you need your mobile home property tax bill sent to a different address, you need to update the Mobile Home Registration form. You can email it to or mail it the Clerk's Office at the address listed below.

Mailing address for the form: Champaign County Clerk, Brookens Administrative Center, 1776 E Washington St, Urbana, IL 61820


Mobile homes have three possible exemptions: senior citizen, disabled person, and disabled veteran. To apply for a exemption, complete the Mobile Home Registration form. You can email it to or mail it the Clerk's Office at the address listed below.

Senior Citizen & Disabled Person exemptions can receive 20% off the total property tax bill for the mobile home. Senior citizens must be at least 65 years of age and provide ID verifying age. Individuals with disabilities will need to provide a claim number. For senior citizen and disabled exemptions the individual applying must be the title holder and living in the mobile home. Once the exemption has been verified, it does not need to be applied for year after year.

Disabled Veterans can receive 100% off the total property tax bill for the mobile home. They must be the title holder and living in the mobile home. Disabled veteran status must be verified with discharge papers or a veteran's assistance letter of benefits. Once the exemption has been verified, it does not need to be applied for year after year.

Mailing address for the form: Champaign County Clerk, Brookens Administrative Center, 1776 E Washington St, Urbana, IL 61820


Transferring the title of a mobile home involves multiple government offices. Please follow the steps outlined below.

1. All property taxes on the mobile home must be paid - current tax year and any delinquent. The process cannot go forward with any outstanding taxes.

2. Acquire a Certificate of Taxes Paid from the Treasurer/Collector's Office, verifying that all taxes are paid.

  • The title must be present for the Treasurer/Collector's Office to inspect when requesting the Certificate of Taxes Paid.
  • Before receiving the Certificate, you will need to complete a Mobile Home Registration form at the Treasurer/Collector's Office. You can download and bring with you or copies will be available there.
  • The Treasurer/Collector's Office will provide 2 copies of the Certificate, 1 is for the Clerk's Office and 1 is for the Secretary of State.

2. The title must be signed by the buyer and the seller.

3. Take the signed title and Certificate of Taxes Paid to the DMV and have the title transferred.

Mobile Home Park Owners and/or Managers

Fraud Protection

Property fraud is a legitimate concern for property owners. Below are different ways the Recorder's Office can help you protect your property.


The Recorder's Office offers a free service called Property Fraud Alert. Property Fraud Alert monitors documents filed with the Champaign County Clerk & Recorder's Office and will alert you if anything is filed with your name on it. Sign up for Property Fraud Alert here.


The deed to your property is securely stored by the Recorder's Office and we are happy to provide a free copy of it to the property owners upon request. You should never be paying a service or company for a copy of your deed. If you receive an unsolicited letter from a company offering to provide you with your deed and other legal documents, it is definitely a scam.


Illinois General Assembly (Public Act 100-276) authorizes County Recorders to protect owners of real property from fraudulent filings by establishing a process to review and refer to the circuit court documents suspected to be fraudulent. This process is outlined in the Fraud Referral and Review Process pursuant to Illinois Statute (55 ILCS 5/3-5010.5).

The Recorder shall use the following criteria, found in Illinois law (55 ILCS 5/3-5010.5), to consider whether a filing may be fraudulent and subject to review by the Circuit Court.

(1) whether the owner of the property or his or her designated representative has reported to the recorder that another individual is attempting or has attempted to record a fraudulent deed or other instrument upon the property;
(2) whether a law enforcement official has contacted the recorder indicating that he or she has probable cause to suspect title or recording fraud;
(3) whether the filer's name has a copyright attached to it or the property owner's name has nonstandard punctuation attached to it;
(4) whether the documents assert fines that do not exist or have no basis under current law or that require payment in gold or silver;
(5) whether the documents are maritime liens, or liens under the Federal Maritime Lien Act or the Preferred Ship Mortgage Act, or not authorized by the United States Coast Guard;
(6) whether the documents are land patents not authorized and certified by the United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management;
(7) whether the documents are representing that the subject of the lien is releasing itself from a lien held by another entity, with no apparent cooperation or authorization provided by the lienholder;
(8) whether the documents are protesting or disputing a foreclosure proceeding that are not filed within the foreclosure suit and with the court presiding over the matter;
(9) whether the documents are Uniform Commercial Code filings referencing birth certificates or other private records that are not in compliance with Section 9-501 of the Uniform Commercial Code;
(10) whether the documents are re-recording deeds to re-notarize or attach notary certification if prior notarization already appears unaltered on the document of record;
(11) whether the documents are asserting diplomatic credentials or immunity, non-United States citizenship, or independence from the laws of the United States;
(12) whether the documents are claims that a bank cannot hold title after a foreclosure;
(13) whether the documents are deeds not properly signed by the last legal owner of record or his or her court appointed representative or attorney-in-fact under a power of attorney;
(14) whether the documents are manipulated or altered federal or State legal or court forms that release a lien;
(15) whether a document is not related to a valid existing or potential adverse transaction, existing lien, or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction;
(16) a document that is not related to a valid existing or potential commercial or financial transaction, existing agricultural or other lien, or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction;
(17) whether the document is filed with the intent to harass or defraud the person identified in the record or any other person;
(18) whether the document is filed with the intent to harass or defraud any member of a governmental office, including, but not limited to, the recorder's office, local government offices, the State of Illinois, or the Federal government; and
(19) whether the documents are previous court determinations, including a previous determination by a court of competent jurisdiction that a particular document is fraudulent, invalid, or forged.

If the Recorder determines, after review by legal staff and counsel, that a deed or instrument that is recorded may be fraudulent, unlawfully altered, or intended to unlawfully cloud or transfer the title of any real property, the Recorder shall record a Notice of Referral, identifying the document, corresponding document number in question, and the date of determination.

The Recorder shall notify any parties within the reviewed document of his determination to seek review. The Recorder shall use county property tax records to identify and provide notice to the last owner of record by telephone, if available, and certified mail when a deed or instrument has been referred for review and determination.

Any person, entity, or legal representative within the reviewed document shall confirm in writing his or her belief that a document or documents are suspected to be fraudulent and may request that the Recorder refer the case for review to the Circuit Court. Upon request, the Recorder shall bring a case to the circuit court by filing a petition for review therein. Notice of the hearing shall be provided by the Recorder to the filer, or the party represented by the filer, of the suspected fraudulent document, and the last owner of record, as identified in the referral.

If clear and convincing evidence shows the document in question to be fraudulent, the circuit court shall rule the document to be fraudulent and the Recorder shall forward the judgment to all the parties identified in this subsection. Upon receiving notice of the judgment of fraud, the Recorder shall, within 5 (five) business days, record a new document that includes a copy of the judgment in front of the Notice of Referral that shall clearly state that the document in question has been found to be fraudulent and shall not be considered to affect the chain of title of the property in any way.

If the circuit court finds the document to be legitimate, the Recorder shall, within 5 (five) business days after receiving notice, record a copy of the judgment.

A decision by the circuit court shall not preclude the State's Attorney or the Sheriff from proceeding with a criminal investigation or criminal charges.

The Recorder shall send a notice, by regular mail, the order of the Circuit Court to all parties within the reviewed document.

Nothing in this Section precludes a private right of action by any party with an interest in the property affected by the review and referral, or the filer of the document or documents suspected to be fraudulent. Nothing in this Section requires a person or entity who may have had a fraudulent document or encumbrance filed against his or her property to use the fraud review and referral process created by this Section.

The Recorder shall retain any filing fees associated with filing a deed or instrument that is determined to be fraudulent, unlawfully altered, or intended to unlawfully cloud or transfer the title of any real property under this Section.

The Recorder shall provide public notice 90 days before the establishment of the fraud referral and review process authorized hereunder. The notice shall include a statement of the Recorder's intent to create a fraud referral and review process and shall be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the County and, if feasible, posted on the Recorder's website and at the Recorder's office.

Vote Centers

Voting that works for you!

Vote centers are being used nationwide to make voting more accessible, convenient, and efficient.

Champaign County voters have demonstrated they want vote centers through the voting trends of the last 10 years. In 2020, voting in-person on election day was the least used form of voting. Voting by mail and voting early were the preferred choices and now the continuing vote by list is available in Illinois. Sign up once for vote by mail and you will automatically be sent a ballot for every election you are eligible to vote in. The regular vote by mail list still exists if you prefer to sign up for vote by mail one election at a time.

Voting Trends

A vote center is a polling place that any registered or eligible to be registered voter in Champaign County can use. The use of vote centers is partnered with the expansion of vote by mail because the more people voting by mail, the fewer people we have physically using polling places. This creates a very expensive voting system for fewer and fewer voters. This is not a responsible or necessary use of taxpayer money.

Vote centers allow for a fiscally responsible way to provide in-person voting for those that want it while expanding vote by mail access to voters requesting it. Vote centers also provide an opportunity for elections to be equally accessible to voters of all abilities. By focusing on a set number of vote centers the Clerk's Office can provide better training and resources to election judges.

In addition to all vote centers being available for all voters in Champaign County, vote centers will offer a more flexible and convenient voting opportunity. This applies to all areas of the county. A single day of voting doesn't work for the schedules of most voters anymore and vote centers are a way to increase access, equity, and flexibility for all voters.

Some of the vote centers you see listed below are open for Early Voting. See the Early Voting Schedule here.

Frequently Asked Questions

    Is voting at a vote center different?

    Not at all. It is the same process as voting at any precinct-based polling location.

    How will a vote center have the right ballot for me?

    All vote centers will print ballots on demand as voters are checked in. The Clerk's Office tested this in the 2021 Consolidated Primary and General and it worked very well. It also significantly reduces the paper waste from an election because we are no longer printing large quantities of ballots for the polling places.

    Who will the election judges be at vote centers?

    The Clerk's Office will utilize the same procedure for election judges, both county parties submit their judge lists to the Clerk's Office and additional judges sign up directly with the Clerk's Office. Both parties will be represented as election judges at vote centers, as they would be at precinct-based polling locations.

    Accessible Voting

    Since taking office in 2018 Clerk Aaron Ammons has been committed to improving the accessibility of elections in Champaign County. Voters of all abilities should have the choice to vote independently and in private. On this webpage you will find information about all of the accessibility options offered by the Clerk's Office for voting in Champaign County.

    The Clerk's Office is always trying to improve accessibility so please consider completing our short survey after you have voted. Your feedback helps us make improvements for all voters in Champaign County.

    Vote By Mail As An Accessible Option

    The Clerk's Office is currently investigating ways to make vote by mail more accessible to those with vision or motor disabilities and plans to offer a revised system for requesting and completing a ballot for the 2022 elections.


    The ExpressVote is a highly adaptive machine that uses touch-screen technology to produce a paper ballot for voters.  ExpressVote is used to assist voters in filling out their paper ballots. Once the paper ballot is completed to the voter's satisfaction, it will be inserted into a tabulator, just as any other paper ballot would.  At least one ExpressVote machine will be available at all polling places in future elections to assist voters with disabilities in Champaign County. 

    The ExpressVote also has:

    • A moveable button pad with Braille
    • Audio assistance technology that will read the ballot to the voter
    • And a sip and puff control function

    Check out our video on how the ExpressVote works and give it a try next time you vote in-person.

    If you are vision impaired and would like to use the ExpressVote, at the voting location at Brookens a reader pen will be available for anyone who wants to verify the content of their printed ExpressVote ballot before casting it. Simply ask an election judge when are done voting to use it.

    Accessible Polling Places

    The Clerk's Office is reliant on other organizations and government entities to house our in-person voting locations and therefore we cannot always ensure they are completely ADA compliant. We do have them professionally evaluated on a regular basis and below you can find information on our more compliant and accessible early voting locations. These locations are also open for voting on Election Day. For the complete early voting schedule, please click here.
