What happens if my bank is late paying my taxes?
Should your bank fail to pay your taxes on time, or not at all, you are personally liable for any late penalties. In accordance with guidelines from the State Comptroller, it is the responsibility of the property owner to know when property taxes are due. Unfortunately, even late delivery of your tax bill by the Postal Service does not absolve you from any penalties.
