Thank you for your reply.
In Texas, the surviving spouse can take half of the community property of the estate if her spouse passes away. This is true.
However, this is overridden by joint tenants. If they purchased the property together, while married, they were likely joint tenants with right of survivorship. See HERE. As such, his interest was automatically inherited by HER upon his passing, and this is why the title only shows her name. She seems to own it outright - 100%.
As such, she is responsible for the payment on taxes, not the estate or the Executor/Administrator. If she does not pay it, the county can eventually sell the home at a tax deed sale.
