If your property tax statement is yellow, it means that a mortgage company has requested your tax statement. Seniors taking part in the Senior Citizens Property Tax Deferral Program also receive a yellow tax statement. If your mortgage company or the Senior Citizens Property Tax Deferral Program pays your property taxes for you, then this statement is for your records.
If your property tax statement is green, it simply means that no mortgage company has requested your tax statement. If you have recently refinanced or changed lenders, your mortgage company may not have requested your tax statements.
The property owner is responsible for making sure that property taxes are paid. If you are not sure who is supposed to pay your property taxes, please call your mortgage company.
