More than 4 years ago, we bought a house that was previously used as a business by the previous owner. Recently, we received a letter addressed to our property that stated the day care owed a large sum of money in back taxes and penalties. I will do what I can to get the information to the previous owners, but there isn't much more I can do. My concern, however, is that the business is somehow tied to the house and that we may get involved because we currently own the home.
Is there any way that we can held liable for a business the previous owners ran in our current home?
As noted in the comments, this was a letter addressed to the business and our address. The letter was unintentionally opened by one of my family members. The mistake was only realized after initially believing that the taxes were our own. After reading a bit about the accidental opening of mail addressed to others, I am following the requirement to simply seal it back up and send it back to the sender. Since the content was not intended for me directly, I don't believe it is legally proper for me to contact anyone about it until something is addressed to me personally.
