KNOW THE TAX STATUS BEFORE YOU BUY
Almost all real property taxes are secured; values change with market conditions as well as by physical changes to the property itself. By reviewing the tax information prior to buying a home, you will have an overview of the taxes that will need to be paid in the future, calculate the expense, and estimate the land value of the property.
If you buy a tax lien (unpaid taxes) property, you are responsible for the back (unpaid) taxes.
The seller will not normally pay for property taxes in a short sale because they are losing the ownership. As a buyer, you must review the tax status before you make a purchase offer.
