Mortgage company escrow tax payments.
If a mortgage company is paying your taxes from your escrow, the name of the mortgage company that the bill was sent to will be printed above your name. This appears on the page of the tax bill where the taxes are itemized. If the name of your mortgage company doesn't appear above your name or the name of the mortgage company is wrong, you should send a copy of your tax bill to your current mortgage company.

Everyone in the Treasurer's Office is available to answer questions and assist residents with any tax problems. If you are in need of assistance, please notify us and we will work with you to resolve your problems.
