Built in 1921, it was used as a bank until 1931, and in 1936 became Morrison's Cafeteria. The building, at 114 South Olive Ave., is noted for its architectural design, including the beaux-arts and Egyptian revival styles. It was also a key institution during the Florida land boom era of the 1920s. WEST PALM BEACH Owners of mobile homes have until Dec. 31 to register their homes as vehicles to save money on taxes, according to the tax collector's office. If you rent the land on which your mobile home sits, you should register it as a vehicle at any of the tax collector's offices. If you don't have the vehicle decal on the home by Jan. 1, it will be taxed as personal property. That tax can run hundreds of dollars a year, depending on the value of the home, tax collector spokesman David Brose said. In comparison, the average cost of an annual vehicle registration is $46, he said. If you own the land on which your home sits and it's your primary residence, you can't register it as a vehicle and you have to pay property taxes, Brose said. If you've already registered your home as a vehicle in 1997, you have to renew the registration, but the county gives you a grace period of 30 days, or until Jan. 30, to get it done. 42 mo lease $999 cashtrade down, first pymt, $575 refundable security deposit, $547 50 dir. fee, bank fee, tax and tag due at Inception.
