I escrow my Real Estate taxes – what do I do with my Real Estate tax bill?

When your Real Estate taxes are escrowed as part of your mortgage, your mortgage company will typically contact the Town directly to request a copy of your tax bill on your behalf. The Town provides tax information to escrow agents electronically, and only upon request. Once this request is made, your tax bill is sent directly to your lending institution. If you escrow your taxes and you receive a copy of your tax bill in the mail, you should provide the bill directly to your lending institution.

 

If you have questions as to whether or not a lending institution will me making payment on your behalf, you should contact your lending institution or mortgage service provider for verification.
