  2.  All tax bills for other than general taxes shall constitute liens junior to the liens for general taxes upon the real estate described therein; provided, however, that a tax bill for other than general taxes, of the more recent issue shall likewise be senior to any such tax bill of less recent date.

  3.  The proceeds derived from the sale of any lands encumbered with a tax lien or liens shall be distributed to the owners of such liens in the order of the seniority of the liens.  Those holding liens of equal rank shall share in direct proportion to the amounts of their respective liens.
