Well, as i understand the situation so far, the city imposed the tax back in april 2011 (i began renting the space in 2010), however the landlord never knew about it. Now the city is after them for the taxes that they should have been charging. So since the landlord was never charging me the tax, they want to now charge me for the tax that should have been collected each month since april of 2011.
