Full Answer

In order to file a property tax, it is important to ensure that one has the assessment of the property in hand. Generally these can initially be gained from the realtor selling the property or the previous owners. By visiting the country assessor's office, an assessment of property can easily be obtained for those who need it. This paper should state the amount of taxes needing to be paid.

A good way to find out how to file and where to file property taxes is to call the bank that holds the mortgage. The lender can give much needed advice on how to file the property taxes. Generally, all that needs to be done to file property taxes is to wait for the Internal Revenue Service or the local assessor's office to send out tax statements. Once this statement is received, the property tax statement can be mailed in with a check for payment. Sometimes they will have a section on it to fill out information for a card to pay. In some areas, property taxes may be paid over the phone with the IRS or by going in person to the local assessor's office.
