Edison resident mixes up taxes
An Edison woman accidentally paid her neighbor's property taxes instead of her own while paying bills online.
Kathy Adams says she mistakenly selected her neighbor's house instead of her own on the township's website. Once she realized her mistake, Adams says she also paid her own taxes.
When Adams called the town, she learned that the township had already cashed both checks. Edison township officials say that once they get a check, no matter who sends it or how it's received, they must cash it in 48 hours.
