Chances are you could contact the taxing agencie and receive the tax bill there. Most don’t care who they send the tax bill to, nor who pays it as long as it gets paid.
On a side note, if you are buying the home on a contract for title, how do you intend to protect your interest in the home? The seller could get judgments against him/her and that home may become the subject of the creditors remedy. Also, how would you know that the seller is making the payments to the lender (unless you are taking over this process for them)?
How can you be certain you will be able to locate the seller when you have paid off your purchase so he can obtain the title from the lender and sign it over to you?
For me, there is too little control over these types of deals but maybe you have found a way.
