Who gets the property tax bills?

It is important that the property owners see where their taxes are going and see that they receive all exemptions available to them. For these reasons, bills are usually sent to the owners. If the mortgage company requests the original billing, they must mail a copy of the tax statement to their borrowers within 15 days of their receipt of the bill.  Thru various methods arranged between the mortgage companies and the Treasurer's Office, mortgage companies receive records of tax payments due for their customers.
