If you end up on the taxiway then there's been a pretty sizeable cock-up somewhere along the line. At the end of the day the tower expects you to be on the runway, and it's the runway which is kept clear for landing -- not the taxiway, which could be in use by all sorts of other traffic.
There's bound to be an investigation and whether the pilot gets in trouble or not will depend on whose fault it is.
I can't speak for private aviation but it's not completely unheard-of even at commercial level. Look at the China Airlines A340 in Anchorage and other recent occurrences.

whats with the china a340 in anc?
When it got a take-off clearance it was suppose to turn right into the runway and take-off. Instead it just started to accelerate for take off on a taxiway parallel to another runway.
It was about a second away from crashing.

A delivery aircraft of Shanghai Airlines 737-800 took of from Honolulu either with the wind, or on a taxiway. I couldent see because HNL Airport's "junk" was blocking. All other aircraft departed on 08R, 08L - small aircraft on 04R, 04L. Instead this 738 lifted off with the wind. The wind was blowing from the Northeast, it lifted off Southwest. Funny.

The other week a Jet Airways Boeing 737-700 in India landed in Pune on a taxiway parrell to the runway. The pilot did not know what happened until he got to the terminal. The same aircarft took-off a few hours later on the return flight to Mumbai with no damage.

I'm pretty sure that it's a routine thing for small aircraft like Cessna's and Pipers to land at [designated] taxiways.
In the seventies, when DFW had only two main north-south runways [17R/35L, and 17L/35R], the third north-south runway [18R/36L] was the inner western taxiway! I presume that it was limited to turboprops only, since it was only 4000ft or so.

T prop, I have some questions. How do you know that knowledge? How often do you go to the airport? Do you submit any photos to A.net? Are you one of those guards? Do you work on the ramp? Do you know what other delivery/ferry flights are coming in? Do you take pics of Honolulu action too?
