Am I responsible for the property taxes after my property has been sold for nonpayment of taxes?
Question Details: It has been 3 years since the property was sold. The land was rezoned commercial, I believe 7 years ago, without notification or hearing. The house was knocked down about 5 years ago without notification. I've recently been served to pay the taxes for property.
You are responsible for whatever portion of the taxes were not satisfied or paid off when the home was sold for nonpayment. If, for example, you owed $50k in taxes and (after paying the cost of sale--e.g. the sheriff's fee) $35k was realized from the sale, you'd still be liable for the other $15k.
