Bills are sent to the address of the last known owner by State law. The Assessor's Office updates its records according to transfers received from the Hillsborough County Registry of Deeds after they have been recorded. Your attorney or title company who handled the closing should have checked the status of taxes due. However, it is YOUR responsibility as the new owner to make sure taxes are paid and to advise us of your mailing address in writing. If you have any questions concerning this please call us. Interest at 12% per annum is charged on tax bills NOT PAID by the due date.
