Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Were you listed on the deed as a "joint owner" or were you "tenants in common " on the deed?.
Was he receiving any type of discount on the property taxes?
Ok, this is getting a little more confusing because now you are adding a sister to the deed....
When father owned the property solely, and then he transferred it, who did he transfer it to...you, sister, and himself?
If so, and he was getting some type of discount on the taxes, then when he died, that discount should have stopped. So if you are still getting it, if they find out he is deceased, then they will have the right to demand repayment of any improperly received discount from the date of father's death.
I am not sure what " order #164790-90 " is so you would have to give me some context about what it is and what it relates to..
But if it is a civil order for money or some type of order to pay back taxes, then no, it is not an arrestable citation and they would just summons you to court if it remains unpaid.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time..
