Your taxes should have been pro-rated at the time of your real estate closing, however, many new property owners believe they actually paid the taxes at closing. Please contact your real estate agent, title company or attorney to review your closing documents with you and explain where and if credit was given between the buyer and seller regarding property taxes. The real estate agent, title company or attorney may be submitting payment to us for the taxes on your property and until payment is received, taxes will show as unpaid. If your agent advises that taxes are paid or if you are unsure about the status, you can verify whether payment has been posted to your account on by accessing our tax website.
Please note that our ownership records are updated once a year based on information provided to us by the Manatee County Property Appraiser's Office and your name(s) may not yet be listed on our website.
