I received a tax bill on property that I sold, what do I do?

If you own a property as of January 1st of the tax year currently being billed you are responsible for the taxes for that year. If property is transferred and deeds filed for the transfer within the year prior to the tax rolls being printed the new owner will be billed, but many times due to the timing of the transfer and filing of the deeds, the bill will be sent to the previous owner. If you feel the billing is still in error or that the taxes should have already been paid, you should contact the title company that handled your closing documents.

Title companies usually prorate property taxes with the closing fees and take the amount the seller owes in property taxes and credits it to the buyer and the buyer is then responsible for the taxes. If you sold property during the year and you know the title company prorated the taxes and credited the buyer, you may want to forward the tax bill to the buyers.
