1. What are Escrow Taxes?

Escrow taxes are funds which have been collected by a bank, loan, mortgage or other escrow service company from the property owner for the payment of taxes. These funds are usually collected monthly as part of the regular payment and held in escrow until the taxes are due. The escrow company will request the billing be sent to the escrow company’s address and should remit payment to the Collector’s Office on behalf of the owner.

2. What will happen if my mortgage or escrow company does not pay my taxes by December 31?

You are responsible for the payment of your real estate property taxes whether or not you have escrowed with your lien holder. Real estate property tax bills that are not paid before January 1 will accrue late penalties and fees.

3. I recently purchased real estate; will I receive a bill this year?

The new owner is responsible for the taxes on the property irregardless if a tax bill is received. If you are a new owner and have not received a tax bill by December 10, please contact the Collector’s Office immediately for further instruction.

4. My loan has been paid off. Will my mortgage / escrow company still pay the taxes this year?

Please check with your mortgage / escrow company. An escrow company serves as your agent and in the event the escrow company does not pay the tax bill by December 31, you must do so in order to avoid interest and penalties. If you did not receive a tax bill and you believe your mortgage / escrow company will not pay the bill, please contact the Collector’s office immediately so we may provide a tax bill to you.

5. I have moved recently and have not received my tax bill. Who should I notify?

Please notify the Assessor’s Office immediately of any changes to your address. Escrow companies do not notify Jackson County of a taxpayer’s mailing address change. If you do not have an escrow service company and you have not received a bill before December 10, contact the Collector’s Office immediately, so we can forward a copy of the tax bill to you. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve your obligation to pay property taxes and any late charges due.
