Customer Question

My parents are deceased, they left a home to be divided among 6 siblings in 2006. I made sure my father's taxes got paid, and I have been paying rent to live there sometimes. Now I received a delinquent tax statement summary...in my deceased dad's name. Am I liable to pay thse back late taxes?
