If you are working with a Realtor they can furnish that information. If not contact your county Tax assessor and they will let you know. If your purchasing a property from a regular seller owned property, bank owned etc and dealing with a Realtor here in Indiana the contracts have an area that can be marked all property taxes past or present will be paid up to the day of closing. Bank owned properties have in their contract usually that all taxes past or present will be paid up to the date of closing also. That means you will be credited on your settlement statement for that amount. Here in Indiana we pay our taxes 1 year in arrears. So if you have pay your spring tax in 2015 your actually paying for spring of 2014. The credit on your settlement statement at closing can be quite a bit of funds. All states are different though ours just happens to be 1 of three states in the country that is always 1 year behind.
