You got credit at closing towards whatever portion of the tax year you didn't live in the house, it was taken off the purchase amount. Now you responsible to pay for the entire year, using that credit for part of the year. Foreclosure has nothing to do with taxes owed by you for 2007.Why wouldn't you pay school taxes on a property you own?

Basically if you don't pay, you will start to build up monetary penalties with the school district you owe. AKA- your tax bill will get bigger. Eventually, if you refuse to pay what you owe, they will just take your house.
