NEW PHILADELPHIA -- Jeff Mamarella, Tuscarawas County treasurer, said all first half 2013 manufactured home taxes have been mailed and are due by March 1.

Failure to receive a tax statement does not eliminate responsibility to pay taxes and penalties. If you have not received your manufactured home tax bill, contact the County Treasurer's Office at 330-365-3254. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A drive-thru window is open for payment convenience. Also, new this year, payment can be made 24 hours a day at a drive-up payment drop box located on 1st Drive NE, by the County Annex Building.

If you are the owner of a manufactured home and have not registered with the County Auditor's Office, you should do so immediately. Ohio law requires all owners of manufactured homes to register with the County Auditor for determination of taxes. Failure to register for taxation can result in a fine, plus taxes and penalties.

For information, contact the County Auditor's Office at 330-365-3221.
