Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.

Good afternoon. Rent on your mobile home would be subject to the Michigan sales and use tax. It would actually be the "use" tax that would be applicable. The tax is 6%. See: http://www.michigan.gov/taxes/0,1607,7-238-43529-155460--,00.html

Hi there. I wanted to follow up to make something clear. If this is your own mobile home, there is NO sales or use tax, even if its a mobile home in a park. Only if you are a registered lessor in the state of Michigan would you be required to pay the use tax. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.
