Property tax bills are not mailed to mortgage companies. The majority of lenders electronically access and retrieve tax data directly from our system, eliminating the need for a paper copy of the bill
Most mortgage companies contract with a tax service to handle the processing and payment of tax bills. Although your mortgage company may forward your escrow funds to the tax service as early as August, the tax service does not normally remit payment to the County until December. Mortgage companies not using a tax service also generally wait until December before remitting payment. The County applies payments as they are received.
Please be advised that even if the taxes are to be paid from an escrow account, the property owner remains responsible for ensuring timely payment of the bill.
Real estate owners who have their property tax bill paid through a mortgage escrow account may no longer receive an annual tax bill in the mail.
In an effort to reduce operating costs, the Revenue Department will not mail real estate tax bills to property owners whose prior year bill was electronically paid by a mortgage lender. Lenders are provided with access to the tax office files and can retrieve billing information for their serviced properties.
If you would like a copy of your billing statement, it is available for printing through our Online Tax Bill Search beginning in July of each year.
