A modest win for Colorado’s manufactured homebuyers

On Thursday, May 24, Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law House Bill 1315, a measure that exempts the purchase of a new manufactured home from the state sales tax.

Developed by CCLP, this policy will save nearly 1,000 low-and moderate-income homebuyers a year about $1,000 on the purchase of a new manufactured home, beginning July 2019.
