How does an Escrow Analysis work for new construction?

Frequently Asked Question

If your house is newly built the taxes may still be based on the land value only, without the value of the house. After construction, your property will be re-assessed by your County Tax Assessor and your taxes will be increased to include the house. The difference between these tax amounts will be billed to you on an “Interim Tax Bill”.

In addition, there may be an interim tax bill for each of your property taxes; City, County, and School. These bills will say “Interim Tax Bill” on the form. Usually, you will receive interim tax bills within the first year of your house being completed. Interim tax bills are not included in your escrow account and are usually paid by the homeowner.
