Refer to your closing papers or call your title company or real estate agent to determine your agreement. Normally, the taxes are prorated between the buyer and the seller. However, taxes can be paid per any agreement between the buyer and seller. Under Texas law, taxes follow the property.
Your mortgage company should send you a release of lien, and it must be filed with the County Clerk 214-653-7275. If you do not receive a tax statement by mid-November, go to the Property Tax Lookup/Payment Application, or call our Customer Care 214-653-7811.
