The tax bill will be issued to the owner as of the lien date January 1. Disposal, removal, or sale of the assets after the lien date will not affect the tax bill. No prorations are made by the tax collector on unsecured property taxes. Any pro-ration is strictly a private matter between buyer and seller. The owner of record as of January 1 is responsible for payment and will be lien if bill is not paid.
You should also contact the Assessor’s Office to make sure the ownership of record has been updated. Failure to do so could result in future billings and liens.
