Of all the darndest things, the online record for my local municipality has an account for personal property taxes which one may log into to pay such tax owed.
I have mailed checks in past and on occasion logged in and paid my car tax on line.
So I log in to pay the latest bill- they bill twice a year, to see my account showing the outstanding taxes dues since I have owned my car- for the past THREE years.
This happened with the nanny taxes and my IRS records which one year just were not found (by the IRS in their system. I had all the hard copies and provided them)
I mean it is just so weird. What are the odds of a computer error which is NOT in my favor happening not once, twice but thrice! .
OF COURSE I have all the prior bills and thankfully I am in habit of writing down the date I mail a payment. I have a carbon copy of checks and the bank has an electronic record (provided IT is not MIA) So I can FIND each payment, including those that came out of my bank and were paid electronically. Its just a royal pain in the ass for something that should not be par for the course- but for me, it seems still occasionally is.
I do think they have a new site- well they obviously do , as the url is slightly different from older letter. So I am hopeful this is not a problem isolated to my account. I mean that might be mean to will it be a larger problem with their whole system, than little old me...
But , if so it might be 1. MUCH easier to resolve if it is a KNOWN issue and 2. Means not possible I am being hacked.
can think of so many better ways to get some fun.
I have to straighten this out. I intended to pay my bill , which is actually overdue! True I always forget this one til a few weeks past due. They send this "reminder" a bit too early ahead of time- which I tell you for someone with ADD , just is worthless. We need the reminder days or hours or even preferably MINUTES before a deadline LOL
Now I figure best to go pay it in person and bring all my records with me as I don't trust their in line system to capture the record correctly. Best to get a receipt handed to me.
Ce la vie....
