Consumer Complaint: Yesterday, I received a letter from XXXX XXXX XXXX with an address for Chase- XXXX XXXX . XXXX XXXX , XXXX , TX XXXX with a request to send proof of tax payment before XXXX XXXX , 2017 or to fax XXXX . They claim that as of XXXX XXXX , 2017 , there are outstanding taxes for the property. I called Chase customer service this morning and the customer service representative verified that we do NOT have an escrow account with Chase and then added the tax specialist to the telephone call. The tax specialist said the letter was a courtesy letter so the county would NOT take our property for unpaid taxes. I verified on-line in public records that the taxes had been paid and the date paid is before XXXX XXXX , 2017 . I also went to the tax collector ‘s office and got a receipt yesterday afternoon. The tax specialist did NOT answer any of my questions. The telephone call was NOT recorded in its entirety, the beep of recording began after I asked the tax specialist who sent the letter and would I receive another letter with resolution of the information in this letter. I ‘m angry, because for a courtesy letter, it said that they did not receive a response from us by XXXX XXXX , 2017 , Chase would pay all outstanding taxes and penalties and interest for the property. We may also establish an escrow account to pay future taxes, which will cause your monthly mortgage payments to increase.
