To whom are tax bills usually sent?

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: 

  1. 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. 
  2. 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.
