Keeping separate account good idea

I solved the property tax issue. By setting up a special tax account with its own checkbook. Money comes out of my checking each month and into the tax account. Then I just pay my taxes and home insurance out of that account. This way I know that it is taken care of and that I have enough money to cover every thing. Works great.
