    Answered . It is likely that if the property is sold with the tax debt unsatisfied that the three major credit agencies will view that as a blemish on your credit.

    Answered . Unpaid property taxes can result in many issues that will negatively impact your personal credit rating for many years (e.g., potentially 10 years, or more), including tax liens and tax sales. I would recommend finding a California tax or real estate attorney to help you address your back tax issue as soon as possible to avoid these issues. Best of luck!
