I know that the costs of the tax sale are forwarded on to the property owner
or to the person who buys the property at tax sale....but....there is the
initial cost, the legal notice, the lawyer, the certified mail etc, and what
if the property does not get sold?

In Braintree when I took over as DTC in 2002 I was told all expenses were my
"cost of doing business".  I am now finding information to the contrary in
the town records, where the town previously paid for the supplies for
previous DTC's.

Now the normal costs are paper, envelopes, receipt books, postage, etc I
have handled fine on my own.  But the cost of a tax sale is a bit higher.
