Now that the 2013 tax notices are hitting mailboxes, a common question is: If my mortgage company pays my taxes, what should I do with the tax bill?
We suggest you just keep it for your records. It's not necessary to forward it to your mortgage company, unless they have requested that you do so, as we send records to mortgage companies electronically for tax payments. All property owners will receive tax bills, even if their taxes are escrowed and paid by their mortgage companies.
As we get ready for the 2013 Taxes to be mailed out the first week of September, the Treasurer wanted to talk a little about one of our most common questions asked.
Why did my taxes go up?.
You can check out our write-up on the property tax page.
