Why do I have to pay for a second notice?

If taxes have not been paid during the 30 days following the period when the taxes could have been paid without any interest or penalty, then on or after the 31st day following such interest-free period, the collecting officer is required to send a notice of delinquent taxes to the mailing address of the owner.  A duplicate copy of this notice must also be sent to the third party as requested according to Real Property Tax Law, 923.  The notice must be sent not later than 85 days after expiration of the interest-free period, or 15 days prior to expiration of the warrant whichever is earlier.
