I'll be brief because dinner is waiting. Usually the buyer pays all the taxes that become due after the closing, which would include tomorrows. If taxes for any years were pro-rated to the date of closing, then the buyers should have received credit against the purchased price for the taxes that you parents were supposed to pay, and the current tax bill is the buyer's responsibility. At least that's the way it works in most places, and that's real estate sales 101. If enough money is involved, and the buyer forces the title company to rectify the error, the title company may have a claim against your parents for reimbursement of the tax they should have paid.
