For real estate sold after the annual July billing and before the bill becomes delinquent in January, a statement for the unpaid tax will be mailed to the new owner.

There are a variety of real estate professionals who work in the industry and help make it function. The most common examples are accountants, lawyers, interior designers, stagers, general contractors, construction workers, and tradespeople. Lenders play a major role in the industry as virtually all properties and developments use leverage to finance their business.
