Real Estate Tax Questions and Answers:
Will the tax bill be in my name this year?
The tax bill will be in your name if the deed was a straight land transfer and filed in the recorder's office by August 31st. If the property was split or combined, it will not be in your name until next year.
Who is responsible for paying the taxes?
The current owner is responsible for paying all taxes due on the property. Partial payments are not accepted. If you did not purchase the property until later in the year, the taxes should have been prorated and deducted from the selling price at closing or paid to you in cash by the previous owner making the entire tax statement due by the new owner no later than December 31st.
When are tax statements mailed?
The tax bills are mailed by the first of November. If you do not receive a tax bill by December 1st please contact the Collector's office and request one or at any time go to our web site at taneycountycollector.com. All tax statements may be accessed and printed from our web site. All tax statements are due by December 31st.
If I do not receive a tax bill on the property I purchased, am I responsible for interest and penalty should the taxes become delinquent?
Yes. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you from paying the taxes or any interest and penalty due should they become delinquent. Call the collector's office if you fail to receive any tax statement. All taxes become delinquent if they are not paid or postmarked by December 31.
If I have an escrow account for my taxes, will I receive a tax bill?
No. The tax bill will be mailed to the lending institution where you have your escrow, providing the lending institution has requested it. Should you receive the tax bill, please forward it to the lending institution. If you wish a paid receipt after the lending institution has paid your bill please call and we will mail it to you.
