What if I get a tax bill for a property that I already sold?

A property owner who owns a property on January 1 of the year in which the tax is imposed is liable for all taxes due on the property for that year. This means that an owner who owned taxable property on January 1 can be sued personally for delinquent taxes on a property, even if the property has been sold or transferred since then. It is in the best interest of the seller and buyer as well to make sure that the transfer has been filed with the County Clerk’s office and the change of ownership provided to the appraisal district and taxing entities.
