Lorie Koertner called me on Feb. 26, 2019, to let me know my check was $20 short on the last half of my taxes for 2018.

My check was written and mailed Aug. 28, 2018. The shortage was due to my four pieces of property listed in the paper for unpaid taxes, tax sale to be March 4, 2019.

She saw the mistake. But where, oh where, was my August payment? Was it in the courthouse all that time? On the floor of the post office? A great puzzle! Where, oh where?

The check was dated Aug. 28, 2018, and cashed Feb. 28, 2019.

Many thanks to Lorie.

Has this happened to others?

Thanks again, Lorie.
