Thanks so much for your patience. Could you provide me some background on this situation so I can fully understand you a bit better. Why did you pay the property taxes on property that you didn't own?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
