Why did I get a tax bill on the Lake Sinclair house I already sold?

It's that time of year when I start getting this call.  In Putnam County if you owned the house on January 1st, you will get the tax bill at whatever address they have on file. If that address was your property the perhaps the new owners will get it, but if it was a second home you will likely be getting the tax bill at your primary home.

You can mail it to me, scan it and email it to me and I will make sure the new owner gets it.  If you live in Baldwin or Putnam and don't have your tax bill yet they have been mailed and you can call the tax commissioner's office 

In Putnam County the number is 706-485-5441 and in

Baldwin County it's 478-445-4813

 Links to their websites are

If you purchased or sold you home with Lane Realty I'll be happy to assist you in getting a copy if you have a problem getting one. But I am sure the nice folks at the tax commissioners office will be happy to mail you a copy if you give them a call as well.
