That was hard to take

Having to pay $450 because of someone else's typo? 

The address was 83, not 85.  The county clerk entered it as 85.  The deed said 83, but the county clerk entered it as 85.

So, mail was returned, notices weren't received and taxes weren't paid.  Do they double check the returned mail to insure that it wasn't their mistake?  No, they get too much returned mail to do that!

They enter the address wrong, they discard the returned mail but I have pay the interest and penalties.  I don't mind taking responsibility when it's my mistake but it's hard to take when I'm forced to take responsibility AND pay $450 for someone else's mistake.

Then, they hand me a receipt spelling out in detail how much their mistake cost me.
