What is the name of your state? Florida
:confused:

My mother passed away and forgot to put one piece of property in her trust.
The other two siblings do not want the property because they can't afford to pay the taxes on it and the value is hardly worth putting it through probate. I have been paying taxes on this property (lot) since before my mother passed. The property is in my mothers name alone and her husband passed away years ago.

If I continue paying taxes for X amount of time, will I eventually own the property. What is X amount of time if so?

Do as you like but if you ever want to sell the property YOU will not be able to present a clear title to the purchaser, even if you continue to pay 20 years.

It will still be deeded in someone elses name.

**A: stop playing games and put the property in probate.
