When land owned by two or more persons shall be assessed jointly, and any one or more
of them shall not pay the proper portion of the tax due in such cases, any such owner
paying the whole tax or who has redeemed the whole tract after it has been sold for
delinquent taxes shall have a lien on the interest of the owner who was delinquent
to the extent of the tax justly owing by such delinquent, and may sue and recover
the amount advanced with interest and costs.
