Why wouldn’t escrow have covered the previous owner’s Supplemental bill when the property was sold?
In some cases, a property changes ownership before a Supplemental bill is issued for a prior change of ownership or completion of new construction. This will occur if a property is purchased and then sold within a short period of time. The Supplemental tax bill you receive should cover only those months during which you owned the property, and the previous owner would receive a separate Supplemental tax bill for their pro-rated ownership period. Because of the large number of parcels and property transfers in Orange County, there may be delays in billing for new assessments up to one year from transfer.
