This should have all been resolved at closing. It should be on your HUD statement from the title company.

The property taxes were almost certainly prorated at closing and the buyer would be responsible for paying the taxes in their entirety. Contact the title company so they can show you that your portion of the taxes were already paid as shown on the settlement statement.
