What do I do if there is a change of property ownership?

If you have purchased a property within the current year, the bill may still be in the name of the previous owner or both owners may be referenced on the bill.

The seller of the property would have “paid” their portion of the tax bill to the purchaser of the property (or their escrow/mortgage company) at the time of the closing. This means the current owner of record is responsible for paying the entire tax bill. If you received a tax bill and you have an escrow please forward the tax bill to your escrow/mortgage company.

If you or your escrow/mortgage company have not received a tax bill by October 15th of that tax year, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 859-392-1800.
