New Construction Bills:
In the case of new homes, most often the developer pays the land bill only (i.e., the unimproved portion of your property) since the State Assessment office may not have assessed the dwelling (i.e., your home or the improvement portion of your property). In these cases there is a New Construction bill. New Construction bills are based on when the state assesses the dwelling. The supplemental bills will be in the form of a half year bill, which covers the period January 1st ? June 30th.

These New Construction bills are mailed only to the homeowner (these bills are not sent to the lender) and are due within 30 days. If the homeowner escrows their taxes and would like the lender to pay the new construction bill, the homeowner must send the tax bill to the lender.

After the State Assessment office makes and adjustment to an assessment, the homeowner will receive a revised tax bill that reflects those changes (these bills are not sent to the lender). If the homeowner escrows their taxes and would like the lender to pay a revised bill, the homeowner must send the tax bill to the lender.
