Tax Paying Agents
Please familiarize yourself with the 2012 Miami-Dade County Escrow Tax Procedures Manual and adhere to established deadlines and requirements. Non-compliance will affect your payment discount.
We are requiring service companies or mortgage companies that service more than one Tax Paying Agent (TPA) to submit one wire for each corresponding CD for all accounts that they service. Additionally, the positive payment “C” CD must be a computer-generated 80-position record with a maximum of 35,000 accounts per CD. All error messages must be researched and corrected, before submitting the automated payment CD. To minimize the number of folios paid in error, it is the TPA's responsibility to purge all folios they are no longer responsible for paying. TPAs will be liable if a property owner suffers a loss because the TPA fails to pay property taxes for the maximum discount available.
A CD transmittal form must be submitted with all CDs. The CD transmittal form is on page 10 of the manual. You must also submit the wire transmittal form on page 11 of the manual at least one day before wiring monies. The wire transmittal form must be completed with all requested information. Failure to submit the proper information on the wire transmittal form is comparable to writing a check without an account number and will result in unapplied funds and loss of statutory discount.
If you are unable to obtain the manual from our website please call our office at 305-375-3787 and a hardcopy of the manual will be mailed to you upon request. You may also call Tax Collector’s staff for questions regarding these procedures at 305-375-3787 or email. Additional telephone contacts / fax numbers are located in the Escrow Procedures Manual.
