Answers:

The estate should pay the taxes. The estate needs to go through probate, and assets of the estate cannot be distributed until probate is complete. But estate debt can and should be paid while the process is ongoing. It is the executor of the estate or the administrator of the estate that is charged with the duty of paying the estate's bills, including property taxes. If you are not the executor (as named in the will), then you should immediately find out who is and get them to pay the taxes. You shouldn't pay them yourself until you become the owner, if you do, through inheritance. Not paying the taxes is not a huge deal, aside from late fees. It takes quite some time for a tax foreclosure to take place. That's not the case with a mortgage, those payments need to be made on time or the property can be lost much sooner.

So again, find out who the executor of the estate is so that person can take care of what they're supposed to be taking care of. If there was no will, get a lawyer and apply to probate court for both the probate and to be appointed administrator, so you can do the necessary things.

You ought to be able to, yes. Will be easier if you initiate probate and you are the executor.

Yes, they don't care who pays.

yes

I'm doing the exact same thing with our home here ...its still in probate but I went ahead and paid the property taxes .theres no problem in doing just what youre wanting to do

Before you pay the taxes, check the will. If you are not going to be the one to inherit the house, why pay the taxes?

If you will be the one to inherit, then you also inherit the taxes. You not only CAN pay them, you HAVE to pay them.

Whoever receives the taxes does not care who pays them. As longs as you have the information so the money can be credited to the right account, you can pay it.

However you need to let them know that your father has passed away and that you are the new owner so they can adjust the name of the account for the future.

Yes, there should be no problem with who pays the money. Just bring along the tax letter they sent you, and explain to them what has happened with your dad.
