Tax Responsibility for Deceased Parents It could depend on what kind of taxes. If it's US Federal or state income tax, only the person(s) signing the return are liable. If it is property taxes, the house will be sold at auction after it is seized by the tax collector. The IRS/State can take the filer's property, real or personal to be sold for back taxes.More input from FAQ Farmers:
  • In most cases no, because they were not the childrens' taxes, now if there is anything "left" to the children, it may be taken by the IRS or other agency and auctioned off until the debt is paid. Usually they will give the executor of the estate a time frame (sometimes 90 days) to sell off any assests of the deceased and submit payment, after this time is up they come in and auction it for themselves. If there is "nothing left" in possession of the deceased it usually won't fall to the childrens' responsibility unless they possess some of the deceased money or possessions.
