Who gets a tax bill from the City?

The Montgomery County Property Assessor sends the City a tax file with every owner on record, meaning the person who owned the property on January 1st of that year. The City then generates tax bills based on the file that the Montgomery County Property Assessor sends. We encourage owners of properties to always check their closing documents to see who is responsible for the payment of the taxes. Regardless of who is responsible for paying the taxes, the property can still be ultimately sold at a tax auction if the taxes remain delinquent and unpaid.
