Real Property Collection: If the same party owns the mobile home and land, the taxes are collected as real property and subject to foreclosure proceedings.

Personal Property Collection: If the mobile home owner is not the property owner of the land where the mobile is located, the taxes are collected as personal property and subject to distraint. (RCW 84.56.090 and RCW 84.56.120)
