Last week I got a troubling letter from the county tax office.
It seems our property taxes for all of last year went unpaid, and now we owe $900 plus a $200 late fee.
Seeing as our mortgage bank has been charging us money all along for taxes, and is SUPPOSED to pay them directly, I was concerned. (Our previous mortgage company managed to do this correctly for two years.)
I called the current bank, and it claimed the county never a bill.
The county said I should call my bank about the matter.
My bank's customer disservice department appears to be staffed by an even harder-core species of moron than the county tax office.
