statement color

Green Statements
A Green statement indicates that no lender has requested information and the property owner is responsible for paying the bill.

Yellow Statements
A Yellow statement indicates our records indicate a lender has requested your information and will likely be making your payment.*

*Taxpayers are urged to check with their mortgage company if they believe their current arrangement is not reflected by the color of the tax statement. This has been an area of confusion in the past years.
