To find out if there is a lien on your house, you can research this at your local register of deeds office and or research this with the local court of clerks office in your county in which you live or for the county where the property is located.

Who is responsiblefor the lien when a house gets sold the buyer or the seller?

The lien is on the house. That's one of the reasons it goes through escrow, to find out if there are any outstanding liens on it. If there are outstanding liens on the house that are discovered in escrow, the buyer can make the seller pay the liens or stop the sale of the house, but if they are not found, the lien still exists and the buyer has to pay them after the house is in their name. Escrow is a good thing although it is time consuming and costly.

Can the lien against my property be released when the the original owner apparently with a tax debt died.?

Assuming you are talking about an IRS lien, then yes. If you were not liable for the taxes, then the lien should not be on your property. The first thing to determine is whether or not the lien actually attached to your property. If the previous owner of the house owned the house at the time the lien was filed, then the lien probably legally attached to the house. If this is the case, this is something you should take up with the title company that did the title work when you purchased the house. More common is that the IRS filed a lien and the address they had on record was still his old house (your house). Just because the lien had that address on it doesn't mean you have a lien on your house. If the property wasn't his, then it did not legally attach. If a title company still has issues with this (if you are trying to sell your house), you may need to get a Certificate of Non-Attachment from the IRS to show them that it's not attached.
