Real Estate Tax Escrow Regulations: Calculations

Answered by: 

Question: 
Where can I read the real estate tax escrow regulations and how it directs us to calculate a customer's taxes. For instance, do I take the most recent installment of taxes times two? Do I take the previous calendar year's taxes or do I take the two most recent installments added together? I'm in a county where the installments are not equal amounts. More specifically, I need to know what the regulations state.
Answer: 

You should be able to refer to the county and determine next year's taxes. RESPA instructs you on how to determine escrow payments in Section 3500.17.
