Tax Sale

Baltimore County properties with unpaid real property taxes, accrued interest or penalties may be auctioned at the County's annual tax sale. The sale occurs in May or June of each year.

How It Works

Real property tax bills are issued on July 1 each year. Failure to pay in full or, if eligible, make the first semiannual payment by September 30 will result in the account being considered delinquent. Interest will accrue until the taxes are paid in full. Unpaid balances due past December 31 are subject to accrued interest, penalties and tax sale.

On March 1, a Final Tax Sale Notice is mailed, allowing the property owner 30 days to pay the property taxes and accrued interest and penalties. If the owner fails to respond to this notice, the property may be sold at the annual tax sale.

Baltimore County posts properties to be sold on its website around the first of May. If a property is sold for taxes, the owner has six months from the date of the sale to redeem the property.
