Mortgage Escrow Accounts
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.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.
