Per NYS Real Property Tax Law (ss 922,942): A property owner is not relieved of the responsibility for payment of taxes despite the fact that his/her name is not properly entered on the tax roll and no statement of taxes was received by him/her. There is no provision of law which would permit a waiver of penalties and interest arising out of a failure to make timely payment of tax bills.
