If you have outstanding property taxes, then eventually the taxing authority will foreclose on the property in court and a judge will order that the property be sold for the back taxes.


But the taxes follow the property, not you personally, so they won't come after you personally for the liens, just the property. When it sells, any proceeds will be used to pay off the taxes and then the new owner will start out fresh.
