Property taxes may be collected along with your mortgage payments and held in an escrow account for you. These funds are then distributed at the proper time by the company which handles your mortgage payments. If an escrow company is providing this service, an informational copy of your tax statement will contain the notice “If taxes are paid by an escrow agent, do not pay.”
