Escrow Pro provides several benefits for taxpayers and the Treasurer's Office:
- The ability for taxpayers to check on their tax payment prior to the payment being sent to the City.
- The near elimination of duplicate payments or overpayments, as the City provide an updated payment file that the banks will review prior to sending payment.
- The ability of the Treasurer's Office to automate the posting of these payments to the Wauwatosa Property Tax Web Portal, greatly reducing the time it takes to reflect these payments on the City website.
- All of this is done at a zero cost to the taxpayers - the particiapting mortgage companies assume the cost, as it allows mortgage companies some efficiency in this process.
