I found out a few months ago that someone I hardly knew passed away,problem is it happened a few years ago I still feel like I should send condolences ,would it be in poor taste to do this?

That is a toughy. I think I'd let it go unless it was brought up in conversation.

send a note stating you were so sorry to find out that (person) had passed at such a late date.  Express your sympathy & share a memory.. Even late Im sure the recipient will like it.

 No, not in poor taste at all, acknowledge their loss, and send your condolences.

You can always send a card letting them know you just found out. I'm sure it would be appreciated.

 Hmmm....if it were someone you knew well or if the person you were sending your sympathy to was a friend, I'd say send a note. Often these notes mean more long after the passing because at the time of intense grief much is a blur. However, if you didn't know them well...or know the people you wish to send condolences well...I'd say to let it rest. Too much time has passed.

 I agree if you didn't know them closely I'd let it go.

This. I just found out one of my fav relatives of my former in laws died. Why they chose to tell me two weeks later and not in time for hospital visits or the funeral I don't know. It makes me sad.

I feel that since it was someone you hardly knew, and it was some time ago that they passed, you should let it go.  No card or anything is neccesary.

 I wouldn't, it may bring up sad feelings again.
