If taxes will NOT be paid - taxing authorities will put a lien on the property.
That is something you want to avoid.
If you are the ONLY owner of that inherited property - you are the one who decide to sell and do not need her to be agreed.

You might want to find a different place for her before selling, but if that is not possible you may sell the property with her living there - and the new owner will deal with her. However - that will affect the selling price.

If she is on the title as co-owner - you would not be able to sell the property without being in agreement.

In this case you would need to negotiate or if that doesn't held - you would sue her forcing to sell. Then - you might need an attorney.
