    tax sale

    Dear teachers,

    Could you please kindly explain the meaning of "tax sale"? I can't find it in my dictionaries.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Dear teachers,

    There is no context. It is there in Merriam-Webster Dictionary online but there isn't any definitions.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: tax sale

    There is ALWAYS context. Even if someone walks up to you on a street, says something and walks away, the context is "A random person said this to me on the street without any prior conversation."



    What does M-W say it means? What sentence does M-W provide?

    You're already looked it up. It's not fair to ask us to do that too. Just copy in the text you see there.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Hello, jiang.
    I've found this: Tax sale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I hope it will shed some light on your query.
