Why are delinquencies highest among new property owners?
The primary reasons delinquencies are highest among new property owners are:
  • Lack of knowledge of property tax delinquency dates
  • Misunderstanding as to who is to pay the taxes-the property owner or his/her lender
  • Not inquiring about taxes until a tax bill is received
  • Not reading or understanding the title reports or escrow papers as they pertain to taxes, which have not been paid at close of escrow

Please read your title and escrow papers carefully to determine which taxes were paid in escrow and which remain unpaid. Please contact the Tax Collector's Office with any questions.
