For your convenience you are given the option of paying your taxes in two equal installments, keeping in mind any unpaid balance left on the first half would begin accruing interest on October 16th  and April 16th.

We do not prorate taxes, that generally would be done at the closing.  The owner as of April 1st is responsible for the entire year's taxes even though the taxes are due in two installments.

If a payment is made on delinquent taxes within the past 10 days of a notification deadline the payment must be made by cash, money order or cashier's check.  All payments are applied to the oldest tax balance first.

If a lien is placed, it is filed against the owner as of April 1st and could be found on their credit report.
