I need to know what does the terms, personal liability and no personal liability mean.
We inherited royalties from my mother recently, in which she had not paid county taxes in ten years. She always thought that because it was just royalties it was not tax...."she did not own any land".
Today I was served , along with her asking us to pay 2,000 in back taxes. Beside her name it said, "personal liability", and beside mine and my sisters name, "no personal liability".
I gave the sheriff a copy of her death certificate and he took it with him along with the papers for her.
We have received only one check each, because it has to be at least 100.00 before they issue a check. We figure we only get about 600.00 a year, if that.
We don't know what to do. Actually, we had contacted that lawyers office before about this, but it always was an answering service and they never returned our calls.
Appreciate any help on this.
