Tax bills are normally sent to person on record listed as the property owner. However, if your property is mortgaged, one of two billing events can occur:
- Electronically Billed: If the property owner has a mortgage, and the mortgage company (or a tax service company working on behalf of the mortgage company) has arranged for electronic billing, then the bank/mortgage company/service company receives the bill electronically. The property owner's payment is normally through escrowed funds withheld during the mortgage payment process. The property owner does not receive a copy of the bill.
- Tax bill is mailed directly to the property owner: The tax bill is sent to the property owner, who is then responsible for sending the bill to the mortgage company for payment.
