Important Note About Mortgage Companies
If property taxes are in escrow, property information will be made available to the mortgage companies; however, it is ultimately the responsibility of the property owner to ensure taxes are paid.
For questions regarding mortgage companies paying taxes on behalf of property owners, contact the mortgage company directly (especially, if there has been a recent change in mortgage companies).
Mass Tax Bills File
This information is intended for users who are capable of downloading and manipulating mass bill files. The files are generally updated each Monday.The bill file contains information regarding outstanding property tax balances due to Richmond County as of the date indicated. While the information is public record, it must be noted that accuracy is contingent upon the source information, as compiled by the various agencies, and departments, both internal and external to, the consolidated government of Augusta, GA.
It is of utmost importance to watch for due dates before calling a taxpayer delinquent. In addition, some bills are coded bankruptcy and the taxpayers are protected by the bankruptcy laws. Other bills may be coded as under appeal or assessment change order pending and therefore not yet due. There may be other protections that need to be afforded taxpayers and I highly recommend working with my office staff before publishing anything taken from the enclosed information. Please call (706) 821-2391 for assistance.
