As a new property owner, taxpayers should contact Harris County Appraisal District to ensure that new ownership is recorded and verify the correct mailing address. Also, taxpayers should check the property value and apply for any exemptions that they may be entitled to. This may or may not have been done at closing, but it is in your best interest to verify that these things were done. If you have purchased a new home at any time during the year, you will be responsible for paying the taxes. Do not assume that the Title Company, Mortgage Company, or previous owner paid the taxes. If your mortgage company is suppose to be paying your taxes, you will want to verify that indeed they did set up an escrow account for you and that they are aware of all the taxing entities that will be taxing your property. Taxes vary from state to state and many mortgage companies are not familiar with Texas taxes and may inadvertently overlook some taxes, especially school taxes. School taxes are usually the highest taxes so it is in your best interest to ensure your mortgage company is aware of all taxing entities. Residents of Channelview typically have three (3) taxing entities: ISD, MUD, and County.
In the state of Texas any Tax Agent, Mortgage Co., or Tax Service must request your tax bill annually, even if they had requested your tax bill in the prior years. If your mortgage company requests your tax bill, the original bill will be sent directly to the mortgage company. If your mortgage company did not request your bill prior to printing, the original tax bill will go to the property owner. Sometimes mortgage companies do not request the tax bills until after we print and mail the original tax bills. We will honor any mortgage company's request for a tax bill. If you receive a bill and your mortgage company is paying your taxes, you should write your loan number on the bill and forward it to your mortgage company's escrow tax department. By doing this, you can confirm that your mortgage company has received your bill.
Attention Mortgage Company
Written request for tax bills must be received in our office no later than August 31st to ensure timely mailing of requested bills. All tax bills not requested by that date will be sent to the property owner. If you request a tax bill and do not pay that tax bill, you are required to forward that tax bill to the property owner within 30 days of receiving the bill.
