Are prepaid property taxes considered to be one of the buyer's closing costs?I am buying a house in WI and do not want to set up an escrow account for property taxes and prepay a portion at closing unless this amount is considered a closing cost that can be credited back with the seller's contribution set forth in the contract. Does anyone know if this prepaid amount is considered a closing cost?August 15 2010 - Kenosha00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
