Ordinary taxes, which include taxes on real property, are due and payable without interest as of the first day of July in each taxable year. The taxes are overdue and in arrears on the first day of the succeeding October. Interest and penalties accrue effective October 1 at the rate of one percent (1%) per month or any fraction of a month until paid (Annotated Code of Maryland, Tax-Property Article §10-102, §14-602, §14-603).
Any unpaid State, County and City taxes on real property constitute a lien on the real property from the date they become due until paid (§14-804). Additionally, in accordance with the County Code, all utility charges, levies, front foot assessments and special benefit charges constitute a lien on the real property so assessed and are to be collected and enforced in the same manner as County real property taxes.

Talbot County holds a tax sale each year to sell its 1st lien on real property with outstanding taxes and fees. Should this 1st lien be sold on your property, you may still have the legal right to redeem the property from tax sale and prevent foreclosure of the property for failure to pay any taxes and fees that are in arrears.
