Emmaus Borough Council Miscommunication and a change of address add up to thousands in fees

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 by TARA CARMAN in Local News

The Emmaus Borough Council was presented a lengthy tax complaint at the borough meeting Oct. 20.

Mark Fischer, of North Second Street, told council "an error in a billing address leads to over $1,800 in penalties and lawyer fees and the process was proceeding to the loss of my $200,000 home."

Fischer said the property was originally owned by his father and when he passed away the property was willed to him and the title was transferred.
