Each month when you pay your mortgage, a portion of that payment is set aside for your tax bill. When your county sends out the new tax notices and the final bill for the year, these will be based on the final assessed value we attained from your appeal. At that time your mortgage company will pay the taxes now owed from your escrow account and they will adjust that account according to the results of this appeal. Depending on how your taxes have changed from the previous year this could potentially either raise or lower the amount that you pay to your escrow account with your mortgage company each month, but that will be determined by them and they will notify you about this as soon as they have all of the calculations done. You can still see these values updated online through the county portal (you may not receive the notice, as the mortgage company or bank usually gets it).
