Speaking as a lister, I would say not. They are taxed by what is on the property as of April 1. Mobile homes that move out after April 1 still have to pay a full year of tax....

Subject : RE: Tax Abatement
Can the purchaser of property request a tax abatement on property they purchased after April 1st, or does the owner of record as of April 1st need to request the tax abatement? New owner is tearing down a building and is seeking a tax abatement but can they since their name is not on the tax bill?
