Note: Property tax information is a matter of public record and is available upon written request, sometimes for a nominal fee. Some areas have this information available online free. In any case, the tax collector maintains an alphabetical listing of all persons who paid property tax. You may request that a search be conducted and specify the years. Any information, such as an unlisted phone number, on the property record is now a matter of public information. It may be interesting to note where the tax bill for the property is being sent.
