In addition to the regular tax bills, some states will issue a tax bill out of the normal tax cycle. These bills are referred to as Supplemental (CA), Interim (NJ, NY, PA), Added Assessment, or Levy (MD). These types of bills are sent to the homeowner only and are not included in escrow. The borrower is responsible for paying this tax.
If you're in this situation and find you can't pay the tax bill, please contact a mortgage representative at 800-365-7772.
