Property Taxes are due in the next few weeks in the greater Cincinnati area. Most of us have our mortgage servicer escrow (collect and hold) the correct amount of money each month and then pay the property tax bill when it is due. Right now is a great time to check in with your mortgage servicer and make sure that they have been collecting the right amount of money each month and that t hey know the correct due date.
This is especially important if your county reassessed your property taxes this year. You may be paying to much into escrow if your taxes went down, or to little if you taxes went up. Either way, if your mortgage company sends the wrong amount it is your house that could be in jeopardy.
