It doesn't matter. Lots of landlords have tenents pay taxes as part of rent, it in no way constitutes any form of ownership, or vested interest in the property, without a contract stating it does, you have no rights to the land. Stop paying and the town can take it, maybe you can pick it up for peanuts in a tax lien auction. I recommend that you contact a real estate attorney in your area for specific information on your state's laws.
