You and the landlord are pretty much free to agree that you will pay the mobile home and property taxes as part of your lease. In addition, if your agreement is intended to eventually provide you with ownership of the property, it would be fairly typical for you to pay the taxes on the mobile home and the lot. So the short answer is likely that yes, the landlord can ask you to pay these taxes, and you can agree to do so. However, if you don't think that your agreement was intended to include your paying these taxes, then you need to talk to your landlord and get your agreement finalized and on paper as soon as possible. Ideally, you should have had the agreement in writing, mutually satisfactory, and signed before you moved into the property.

When should you hire taxation lawyers? Tax attorneys can assist individuals and businesses in a number of situations. Start-up businesses should talk to a tax lawyer to understand the tax implication of various business structures. Companies should also seek legal counsel on issues related to payroll taxes, sales taxes, use taxes and international tax issues. Individuals and couples can benefit from a tax lawyer's advice when engaged in estate planning, if you may have committed tax fraud, or if you're facing an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or state tax audit.
