Finance Department - Accounting & Treasurer
Mortgage Escrow Checks
As a reminder, some mortgage companies send escrow checks to a third party tax service before the payments are mailed to the City of Greenfield. In this case, your mortgage company may tell you the check was issued or wired on one date, but that would be the date that the payment was forwarded to the third party tax service. The Treasurer’s Office dates the payments based on when the escrow tax check is mailed (postmarked) to the City of Greenfield. We appreciate your patience with this process, as we are processing all mail received in a timely manner. Have a great day!
