Who is responsible for paying real estate taxes?
The tax liability on real estate remains with the property. Taxes are a lien. When ownership changes, the new owner is liable for any unpaid taxes. On current ownership changes, generally the tax records will reflect the previous ownership. The new owner will need to call us at (573) 547-4422 to request this statement if the previous owner did not forward the statement to you.
