Select Query, then enter the street name in the top box and click next. That will give you the account number (4th column); save it. You can also click on the graphic in the first column to show the property in the GIS map.
Now, go here:
Select Account number, and enter (or copy/paste) the account number retrieved above and click on search. This will show you the tax records for this property and what they current taxes are.
Also, go here:
Select account number in the first drop down and enter the account number retrieved above, then click on FIND. This will give you the current assessment, past assessment, and sales history of the property.
I hope this helps,
When looking at listings on the MLS, I always click the "tax" link and double check to see if the listing agent has the correct tax information entered. Many times, list agents will enter old information and this is probably what happened. However, this doesnâ€™t limit your fault as a licensed real estate agent.
Your client replies on you to provide them with accurate information, and the tax information is information you *should* have known about. Talk to you broker and explain to them the situation, and see what they suggest.
If I were in your shoes, I would buy a very nice (and fairly expensive) closing gift for your buyer to express your apologies and appreciation.
