Wrong! It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure their mortgage company pays their property taxes. If a mortgage company holds an escrow account that includes the payment of property taxes, the procedure for payment varies by company. Typically, each mortgage company will request the tax amount from our office. The mortgage company is required to make this request each tax season. If the request is received early enough, the requesting mortgage company will be listed on your tax notice. This is ONLY an indication of the mortgage company request for the tax information. You must determine whether the taxes will be paid by your mortgage company. We would also suggest you verify the following information with your mortgage company: your tax account information and the amount of taxes due. Even if your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, you will still receive the original tax notice for your records.
