I was surprised to read the other day, that some mortgage companies that escrow taxes have not paid the Real Estate taxes on behalf of the clients.
Unsuspecting home owners may not realize that the taxes have not been paid.This may be due to mortgage company being sold to another company or other reasons but home owners should make sure their taxes are paid.
If you purchased last year and the tax collector sends you the bill , and the bank is escrowing for taxes, please forward the bill to your mortgage company as soon as possible and follow up to make sure they have received it .
Because of the sub prime crisis there is crisis in the mortgage industry and people are being laid off and they may be short handed.
You can call your mortgage company or tax collector and verify when taxes were paid for 2007.You will need the information while filing your tax returns.
When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
