Are property taxes prorated during escrow?

The prorating of property taxes between buyer and seller usually takes place during escrow. However, escrow may not always issue a payment to the Treasurer and Tax Collector, especially if escrow closes before the annual tax information is available, or before the second installment is due.

You should always check the status of your taxes before the delinquency dates, December 20th and June 20th.

It is important to note that the Annual Secured Property Tax Bill is mailed to the address recorded on the warranty deed. You should check the address listed on the top left corner of your warranty deed to confirm where your bill will be mailed.
