No, you do not all of the land. Merely paying for property taxes does not convey title. To do that, the other co-owners would have to legally transfer their intests to you via a quitclaim deed. In fact, absent an agreemnt to the contrary, you may not even be entitled to reimbusement for any portion of the taxes that you have paid.
