Delinquent property taxes is a payable debt as the local state tax authority attaches it to the house. The debt is attached to a Property, not a person. This makes a New title owner completely responsible for his predecessor’s debt.
If anyone is inheriting the estate, the unpaid property taxes on a deceased person will become the responsibility of the heirs. The money to pay property taxes after the death of a parent or other loved one will come out of the estate.
All homeowners have to settle their real estate taxes each year. If you don’t pay your real estate taxes, the tax collector can seize your house and sell it for the back taxes that are owed.
If you cannot afford to settle previous property taxes, liens and debts then you may sell your house to a buyer who can afford to buy the house and release your obligations. Technically the new owners becomes responsible to pay unpaid taxes.
