VIP.....many people may be eligible to tax one last tax advantage. Consult with your tax advisor and if you escrow, contact your lender.

Montgomery County just announced today that they will allow pre-payment of your 2018 property taxes. NOTE: you will need to sign a letter of intent. These early taxes may NOT be paid online. If you ESCROW you may wish to advance the funds and request a refund. There may be a delay in getting this refund. Consult your tax advisor for specific tax advice.
