You are not responsible for the difference.
You only have to pay what the lease says you have to pay as that is a firm and binding contract between you and the landlord.
The landlord cannot possibly require you to pay more than what was agreed upon.
It doesn't matter if there were mistakes. You have a binding agreement and they simply cannot higher or different charges for any reason.
That may make a difference. It sounds like the intention is that they estimated the property tax and then said that the end of each year they will see what it actually works out to be.
Maybe that you need to have a lawyer review your lease in detail, face to face.
