This is my visualforce page which is showing a unknown property error. I don't know what is the reason. Below I have given my controller. Please Help me out. I have looked some of the discussions here but unable to understand exactly why this is happening.
public with sharing class CustopPopupTaxController {

  public Tax__c t1 {get;set;} // new account to create
  public List<Tax__c> results{get;set;} // search results
  public string searchString{get;set;} // search keyword

  public CustopPopupTaxController() {
    t1 = new Tax__c();
    // get the current search string
    searchString = System.currentPageReference().getParameters().get('lksrch');

  // performs the keyword search
  public PageReference search() {
    return null;

  // prepare the query and issue the search command
  private void runSearch() {
    // TODO prepare query string for complex serarches & prevent injections
    results = performSearch(searchString);               

  // run the search and return the records found. 
  private List<Tax__c> performSearch(string searchString) {

    String soql = 'select id, name from Tax__c';
    if(searchString != '' && searchString != null)
      soql = soql +  ' where name LIKE \'%' + searchString +'%\'';
    soql = soql + ' limit 500';
    return database.query(soql); 


  // save the new account record
  public PageReference saveTax() {
    insert t1;
    // reset the account
    t1 = new Tax__c();
    return null;

  // used by the visualforce page to send the link to the right dom element
  public string getFormTag() {
    return System.currentPageReference().getParameters().get('frm');

  // used by the visualforce page to send the link to the right dom element for the text box
  public string getTextBox() {
    return System.currentPageReference().getParameters().get('txt');

Hi sayantan,

Instead of using Tax__c
<apex:inputField value="{!Tax__c[f]}"/>

use <apex:inputField value="{!t1[f]}"/>

which your variable in the controller.
