When and where will the tax sale be advertised?

The notice of advertisement will be published weekly for the 3 weeks prior to the tax sale and beginning on the first of May on our online acution website at https://queenannescountymd.realtaxlien.com. The newspaper advertisement is not updated for payments received after advertisement, however the online postings are updated weekly through date of tax sale. Only 1 newspaper meets the requirement of “a newspaper that has a general circulation in the county in which the property is located” (Annotated Code of Maryland - Tax Property §14-813). The Record Observer can be reach by calling 410-758-1400.
