If I have an escrow account with my mortgage company, do I need to worry about my property taxes?
It is the property owner’s responsibility to assure their mortgage company pays their property taxes. Your tax bill will state if a mortgage company has told our office that they plan to pay the tax. If the mortgage company listed on your tax bill fails to pay, you will be notified and given extra time to pay without penalty. Each mortgage company must request the tax amount from our office each year, typically during September. If the request is received early enough, the mortgage company name will be listed on your tax bill, on the upper left-hand side. A copy of your tax amount information will be sent to the requesting mortgage company for payment. You will still receive an original tax bill, for your records.
