What happens if the mortgage company and the taxpayer remit payment for the same property?
The policy of the City of Mt. Juliet is to refund the second payment to the remitter. If the second payer is the taxpayer, it is likely that the taxpayer’s check will simply be returned rather than cashed and repaid. A duplicate receipt should be provided so the taxpayer may review the situation for possible errors. The taxpayer remains responsible for interest and penalty if a payment is credited to the wrong property. If the second payment is from the mortgage company, it is most likely a check for multiple properties requiring that the check be accepted and a partial refund remitted to the mortgage company. There will be significant delay in a credit being returned to the taxpayer’s escrow account due to the way escrow accounts are operated at the taxpayer’s financial institution.
