What does a yellow and green statement mean?
  • If your statement is Yellow, it indicates that a mortgage company has requested your tax statement or the Oregon Department of Revenue (DOR). 
    • If you believe a lender or the DOR is responsible for paying your taxes, do nothing.
    • If you believe you are responsible for paying the property taxes, please call your mortgage company to confirm prior to making any payments.
    • If a duplicate payment occurs on your account, resulting in an overpayment, the Tax Department will follow an extensive process to ensure the overpayment is returned to the correct party. This can result in an extended delay of a refund.
  • If your statement is Green, it indicates the owner's responsibility to pay the property taxes.
