Baltimore City is postponing its annual tax sale until at least July 20 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Amid the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Baltimore City Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young today announced that the City will postpone its annual tax sale, which is normally held during the third week of May.
The tax sale is now scheduled for July 20, but could be further delayed depending on the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus public health crisis.
“This is an effort to provide property owners with adequate time to adjust and prepare for the tax sale while upholding the integrity of the tax sale processing compliant with Maryland state tax laws,” Mayor Young said.
The tax sale is used to collect delinquent real property taxes and other unpaid charges owed to the City, all of which are liens against the real property. It is a public, online auction of City lien interests on properties.
