Where I live, I have to pay a fire district tax. When I bought the house, the documents I was given implied that this tax would be part of my mortgage payment and that my loan company was to pay it.
I have owned the house for 4 years and I have to fight with them every year after many phone calls and penalty charges. After two years, they paid the tax and then upped my mortgage payment.
Again, I have been fighting them to pay this. I have even written on the letters I send, "Please look into this and make sure that it gets paid OR that you tell me there’s a problem. You have raised my mortgage payments twice, yet I don’t see why if you are paying my taxes."
The last phone call I made, I was told "We do not pay fire taxes that are separate from the city tax."
My response, "Why didn't someone tell me this three years ago????!!!" I have another $150 penalty!
