March 13th was when the first list of properties up for sale was printed in the Baltimore Sun. Also one can register on Baltimore City’s tax lien sale website http://wwwbidbaltimore.com BidBaltimore will update the list of real estate properties with delinquent taxes, water bills, other city liens until the end of April.
March 27th, was the 2nd publishing of properties with delinquent real estate taxes, other bills and liens appeared in another newspaper.
April 3rd, Baltimore City will mail letters to the remain property owners who still owe.
April 30th is the last day to pay all tax lien monies owed to have the real estate property removed from this year’s tax lien sale.
Aside, maybe you don’t have all the monies to pay, then find enough money to get the amount owed by the City’s allowed threshold. Several years ago and from our and others experience, that threshold was $250.00. At least it gives you more time if you need it and takes your property out of the tax sale list.
Also, if you plan to pay before April 30th, usually one can pay with many methods before the last week of April. The last week of April one has to pay in person. The lines are very long as human nature is to wait until the last minute.
Back to the schedule:
May 9th deadline to register for the Tax Sale.
May 17th final update to the tax sale list and bid submission can begin on the BidBaltimore website

Know someone who needs to get cash for a home they own because they no longer can afford the real estate property taxes AND want to dispose of that house, then share this site with them. It is better to get some cash for the home than nothing at all.
