The only tax entry on the Settlement form is for County property taxes from 07/01/2018 through date of sale. The amount is a pro-rated amount for that time frame.

The other "taxes" are county and city transfer fees.

Closing was well before the late date for property taxes. I didn't see any reason not to let them be paid in escrow.
