Are heirs responsible for paying back taxes? Posted on February 14, 2011

In 1972 my father and brother bought some land together in Kentucky. They have not paid property taxes since 1989. The land is going to be auctioned in April. My father is now 86 and in a home with Alzheimer’s, what are the repercussions if we do nothing about these back taxes are the heirs liable for the back taxes if my father dies and if the land sells would we still have to pay?
