January 1st of the last reappraisal year is the day on which the value, ownership, and location of real property is determined for ad valorem tax purposes. Tax bills are prepared in the name of the owner of record as of January 1 of each year. Transfer of ownership during the year does not relieve the seller of tax liability. Ordinarily, taxes are prorated at the time of transfer of ownership. To determine if your taxes were prorated at the time of closing, contact your realtor or closing attorney.
